Employees put on Race for Agrace to help patients

Sunday, September 16, 2018

FITCHBURG (WKOW) — Employees at Agrace Hospice are helping their patients pay for care.

The Race for Agrace is a one-mile fun walk and timed 5K to support the nonprofit Care for All Foundation. Care for All provides free or discounted services to patients who can’t afford end of life or palliative care.

The run was organized by Agrace employees who wanted to help their patients.

“We hope through the race to raise about $33-thousand. Also really exciting is we have a match campaign right now going for our Care for All Foundation, so that those dollars should be able to be matched to help us achieve the final $1 million that we hope to raise for Care for All,” said Chris Hammer, a nurse with Agrace.

This was the second annual Race for Agrace.

Agrace is a non-profit, community-supported agency with offices in Madison, Janesville, Baraboo and Rockford.
