In honor of National Volunteer Week, Shepherd’s Cove Hospice invites members of the community to volunteer for the Race to Remember.

The Race to Remember is a family friendly, chip-timed event that helps provide comfort care for patients facing life-limiting illnesses, support for their families, and community grief support services through Shepherd’s Cove.

It takes nearly 150 volunteers to help race day go smoothly. The Race to Remember offers volunteer opportunities to suit everyone’s interests, including registration, traffic control, food and beverage, water stops, and cheering on the racers.

Volunteers will receive a performance-blend T-shirt at the mandatory volunteer training session at Albertville High School’s cafeteria on April 23 from 5-7 pm. Santa Fe Cattle Company will provide dinner.

Interested in racing? Create a team or register individually at Participants are encouraged to run in memory of a loved one. They can even bring a photo of their loved one to include on our memory wall at the finish line.

Want to financially support the Race to Remember but prefer not to race? Sign up as a fundraiser, create a page and raise funds to help provide end-of-life care for others in the community. Every dollar raised and every step taken supports families across a nine-county community.

Volunteers, racers, and fundraisers can register online at or by visiting Shepherd’s Cove Hospice at 408 Martling Road in Albertville.
