In August of 2020, Hospice & Palliative Care of Chenango County in Norwich, New York, collaborated with Priscilla Bacon Hospice, located in Norwich, England, to participate in a virtual race, entitled the "Norwich to Norwich Challenge!" Each hospice had their own virtual race participants whose collective mileage took their team across the Atlantic; the challenge was to see which hospice's team would cross the Atlantic first!
Due to the popularity of last year's event, this August, Hospice Chenango is hosting our own virtual race entitled, "Triple Norwich Challenge - New England Edition!" What do the three New England States, New York, Connecticut and Vermont all have in common? There is a city/town of Norwich located in each of these states, and each Norwich has a Hospice located within them! Therefore, this year's participants will be challenged to see how many of the 700 total miles connecting all three of these hospices they can achieve by walking, running, biking, hiking, swimming, canoeing, etc. Every registered virtual race participant who will get a t-Shirt, and the top 3 distance achievers will win a prize!
The event begins August 1, 2021 and concludes at the end of August. Those interested in participating can register any time throughout August to get started. Registration is just $27/person!
Here is a question we received last year: "What if I want to support hospice and this event, however, I'm not really going to accumulate many miles?" Please feel welcome to still register! The more the merrier, and all support of our organization and the work we do is greatly appreciated!
Thank you, and good luck!
