The Hospice Dash 5K is an annual charity run/walk beginning and ending at Porter-on-the-Lake Park in Youngstown, NY held to raise funds for Niagara Hospice. 100% of the proceeds from the event benefit patients and families served by Niagara Hospice.

When: Saturday, September 16, 2017
Time: Starts at 9:00am
Where: Starts and ends at Porter-on-the-Lake Park, Dietz Road, Youngstown, NY 14174


Early bird registration has been extended to January 15, 2017. When you click the register button you will be redirected to the registration form.

In early 2017 we hope to announce a new registration process and platform. We have teamed up with a local web development company: Newbird LLC to develop what we feel will be a much easier and interactive participation experience. FundRacing is a social network and fundraising platform that will make it easy for you to fundraise and keep track of your personal donations, as well as your entire team’s donations. This all happens with a competitive twist – you can now keep tabs on your friends and all of the other registrants as well as see team fundraising stats. Along with this you will be able to post anything and everything relating to your racing journey. Images can be shared, stats can be posted, friends can be made and funds can be raised!

If you have already registered through FundRacing during the pilot testing period and received confirmation of payment, you are all set. You can continue to use the FundRacing platform to raise funds for Niagara Hospice through your participation in the Hospice Dash. Contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!
