KRMC Route 66 Race for Hospice
The 11th Annual Race for Hospice will be held May 10, 2014 in Kingman, Arizona. 2013's race had over 200 runners and walkers participating in the 5K, 10K, and the fitness walking event.
A Perfect Race Day
Starting promptly at 7:30 a.m., runners and walkers in the 2013 race enjoyed near-perfect weather conditions with cloudless skies, a light breeze, and temperatures in the mid 70's.
The 10k and 5k routes began and ended at the Powerhouse Visitor Center on Route 66/Andy Devine. Runners followed Route 66 up El Trovatore Hill and then turned onto Hualapai Mountain Road before turning back into downtown Kingman.
The Fitness walk also started at the Powerhouse Visitor Center. Walkers meandered through historic downtown Kingman before finishing at Locomotive Park where the closing awards ceremony was held.
Competing for a Compassionate Cause
Not only did everyone enjoy a spectacular high-desert morning, but the 2013 race garnered over $19,000. All proceeds went toward the ongoing operations of the Joan and Diana Hospice Home, which was completed in Kingman in the Spring 2010. This home provides compassionate care to terminally ill individuals who do not have a caregiver or who live too far out of town to obtain hospice service.
We wholeheartedly thank each participant, sponsor, and volunteer!
