Description

2011 Hospice Half & Dewey Dash:

  • Inspired by the hospice care her husbands grandfather received at Hospice of South Georgias Langdale Hospice House, runner Leanna Greene and Family decided to lead an effort to benefit patients and families cared for at the Langdale Hospice House.
  • Dewey was the middle of Mr. Albert Copeland, who was not only a grandfather, but a husband, father, great-grandfather, brother, and friend to many who knew him during his 78 years, in addition to the staff and volunteers who came to know him during the time he was in hospice care.
  • As a measure of gratitude for the care her loved one received, Leanna found a way to bring her love of running and the desire for a local half marathon together to raise funds for a special need that will add to the comfort of Langdale Hospice House patients. Thus, Leanna named the new race the Hospice Half & Dewey Dash!
  • Quality of life, comfort, and compassion, are some of the goals of hospice care. The private rooms at the Langdale Hospice House contribute to these goals in many ways. Adjustable ceiling fans with lights in each patient room can add to the comfort of patients, and have indeed been used to the point where most are ready to be replaced with a higher grade ceiling fan that will function with high use and maximum efficiency.

  • The overall goal is to raise enough money to provide new fans for all 15 patient rooms of the Langdale Hospice House!
