The 2016 Walk for Dignity Honorary Family, our Veterans, led over 575 supporters of Iowa City Hospice at the 17th Annual Walk held on Sunday, April 24, in Willow Creek Park.
Participants, many honoring loved ones and veterans who had been cared for by Iowa City Hospice, raised critical support for patient care by fundraising over $82,000. In 2015 Iowa City Hospice provided 1,353 days of charity care. After 33 years, Iowa City Hospice continues to provide care to anyone that is eligible, without regard for the ability to pay.

“Veterans are people who raised their hand at one time and said, ‘Yes, I’ll volunteer my life for my country.’ I want to show respect for that and I don’t want to see veterans die alone.” – Gary Boseneiler, Johnson County Director of Veteran Affairs
Iowa City Hospice staff and volunteers recognize the unique needs of American veterans and their families and will support them through a peaceful end of life.
