      Volunteer Registration for 2013 Iowa City Hospice Walk for Dignity

      Each year, the Iowa City Hospice Walk for Dignity provides community members an opportunity to remember, honor and celebrate those they have lost.  Each year, an honorary family is chosen to lead the walk, symbolizing in some way Iowa City Hospice's commitment to exceptional end-of-life care. 

      This year, in honor of our 30 years in the community, the honorary family is YOU: the Iowa City Hospice Volunteers!

      Indeed, Iowa City Hospice would not exist without you:  You planted the seeds of this organization back in 1979, you grew and expanded its reach by your efforts and education, and you continue to be integral to our mission of helping families face serious illness and end-of-life.

      All Iowa City Hospice volunteers who register will recieve a special t-shirt.  It's bright color will identify you as a member of this year's honorary family, and it's sentiment will leave no doubt as to your role in this organization:  

      After 30 Years, Still the Heart of Iowa City Hospice!

      You are givers, we know, and not so comfortable being in the spotlight.  So what can you do?  Here's our top 5 Wish List for Volunteer Involvement in the Walk for Dignity, 2013:

      1. Show up!  Register.  Get your t-shirt.  Wear your t-shirt.

      2.  Bring a friend.  Introduce someone new to the volunteer community at Iowa City Hospice.  Now, more than ever, we need new volunteer talents and support!

      3.  Raise funds.  Last year the Iowa City Hospice Volunteer team was the #1 fundraiser, bringing in $9200, all of which went to support our exceptional end-of-life care.  Let's raise the bar this year, and aim for $13,000 in 2013.  We can do it!  Contact us for details on collecting donations.

      4.  Help at the Walk for Dignity.  Many of you already donate your time and energy to the Walk each and every year.  We couldn't do it without you (are you getting the theme here?).  So, if you already have a regular task that you do every year, we thank you in advance.  If you are interested in helping out this year, contact Judy.Frits@iowacityhospice.org.

      5.  Speak out.  Let us know if you are willing to be a spokesperson for Iowa City Hospice on tv or radio.  We are planning lots of media promotions, and want to feature members of our honorary family whenever we can.  Let sarah.neary@iowacityhospice.org know if you are willing and able!

      We are planning for the biggest volunteer presence EVER in 2013.
