The Race to Remember 5K serves as the largest fundraiser for Hospice of Marshall County. It is a fun, family-friendly and well-supported race that travels through the streets of downtown Albertville and adjacent residential area. The fast, relatively flat, USATF-certified course begins and ends at Albertville High School Coliseum on McDonald Ave. In it's 11th year, the 2016 event will include the optional color feature that was introduced with great success last year.

It's not necessarily about speed or dexterity with the Race to Remember, but rather about remembering lost loved ones while helping raise money and awareness for a good cause.

Contact Malarie Allen at 256-891-7724 or for a digital or hard copy of the brochure and poster to learn more or distribute among family, friends, and coworkers!

Current Fundraising Contest

The Race to Remember is the largest fundraiser for Hospice of Marshall County. We strongly encourage participants to ask for support from friends, family, co-workers, etc. not only because it helps raise more money, but also because it helps us educate more people about who we are and what we do!  We use incentives (like doorprizes-- raise $5 to be eligible!) to help encourage our participants to raise money!
