Hospice of West Alabama (HOWA) would never be able to operate without the community support we receive. In addition to funds provided from the United Way, local churches and memorial donations from individuals, HOWA has two major fundraising events annually.
In addition to the fundraisers, we also have several other events that are free and open to the community. See the information below for a general description of our annual events. A more detailed page may be found under the HOWA Happenings menu closer to the time of the event, and dates will be added to the Upcoming Events Calendar as they become available.
The HOWA 5K is held in the spring and is a reunion, in a way, as many families of former patients participate, as well as many members of the Tuscaloosa Track Club. Participants can choose to run in memory or honor of a loved one, giving their walk a personal meaning. The event includes activities for the entire family, and it gets bigger and better every year.
