The sun shone brightly on this year's 5K Fun Run & Jiggety Jog, our annual fundraiser for VNA's Vermont Respite House, Vermont's only Medicare-certified hospice home. Thanks to the generous support of the runners, joggers, walkers, bikers and hula hoopers, as well as our sponsor contribution, more than $50,000 was raised for the Respite House to help provide room, board, personal care and special service for residents, regardless of their ability to pay.

Respite House is a unique model in health care. It is the first and currently only Medicare-certified hospice residence in Vermont. Vermont Respite House is committed to the Hospice philosophy of helping people live a quality life until their death by respecting and supporting the uniqueness of each person.
