Lewiston, Maine 3.19.14 - On Sunday, May 4th in Farmington and Sunday, May 18th in Auburn at 9:00 a.m. Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice (AHCH) will be kicking off their 2014 Hospice House 5K and Remembrance Walk with some new eco-friendly features. The 6th annual fundraiser for AHCH's Hospice House will be going green. What does this mean exactly? The world is going digital and so is their upcoming event! The Hospice House 5K & Remembrance Walk has partnered with the industry-leading software platform, Virtual Race Bags to provide their participants with a digital goody bag. Event organizers wanted to provide a more effective way for businesses and organizations to reach participants and eliminate unnecessary waste from plastic bags full of paper. Participants receive a welcome invitation email with a link to visit their goody bag a few days prior to the event. Participants can then visit the Virtual Goodie Bag at their leisure, and view, save and redeem offers of personal interest. All participants receive access to a personalized bag and can act immediately or save offers for later, which they can use until the offer expiration date passes.
In addition to the Virtual Goodie Bag, the Hospice House 5K is offering a 100% biodegradable, organic tech-2 T-shirt to all participants. Proceeds from the Hospice House 5K & Remembrance Walk ensure that every patient can receive high quality care and family support services from the Hospice House in Auburn, regardless of their ability to pay. If you're looking for a great cause that is also environmentally friendly, register to participate in the HH 5K & Remembrance Walk today!
