Walk for Dignity 2024

Join us for the 25th Annual Walk for Dignity to benefit Iowa City Hospice and VNA of Johnson County.

Sunday, April 28th- Willow Creek Park, 1117 Teg Dr, Iowa City, IA 52246

***We are closely monitoring the weather forecast for Sunday. We will post event updates (if needed) on our Iowa City Hospice and Visiting Nurse Association websites, as well as our Facebook pages. Please check back for updates. TODAY’S EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER.


Rain, rain, go away, come again another day – but never the last Sunday in April!


Over the last 25 years, the Walk for Dignity has seen a lot of weather, from summer heat to snow flurries. Last year we were literally chilling in parkas! We’ve always stood up to Mother Nature when she’s made us uncomfortable, but we’ve also always put our supporters and volunteers first when safety is an issue.


The forecasts for this Sunday are full of rain, but more importantly the threat of thunderstorms. Strolling through a park when lightning is likely is not wise (even if you’re the type of midwesterner that goes outside to watch tornados). So, for your safety, and ours, we are canceling the 2024 Walk for Dignity.


Save your best bling, as we’ll celebrate the Walk’s 25th anniversary a bit belatedly, on Sunday, April 27, 2025. Weather permitting, of course. But Mother Nature owes us one.


Even though Mother Nature isn’t supporting us today, we hope you will.

You can still donate to the walk by visiting our Just Giving Site Donate – Donation amount – JustGiving or Venmo account Venmo | Iowa City Hospice Inc.


Our Community Still Needs Your Support
