Our Mission Statement
Go the Distance and Women Swimmin' for Hospicare is a fundraising event that supports the care which Hospicare & Palliative Care Services brings to patients and their loved ones at any stage of a life-limiting illness and/or following a death. This event raises funds and provides information and education about the agency and its mission in a manner that is inclusive, fun, and consistent with Hospicare’s ideal of respect for all people.
Thanks to the generosity of our corporate sponsors who cover event expenses, 100% of funds raised are used to help care for patients and support their loved ones.
About 83% of Hospicare’s services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurances. Funds raised bridge the gap and ensure that everyone in our community has access to high-quality and compassionate end-of-life care, regardless of insurance status or the ability to pay.
Hospicare & Palliative Care Services is a 501c(3) non-profit hospice that serves Cortland and Tompkins counties in NY. We provide medical expertise and compassionate, respectful care to anyone in our community who is facing a life-limiting illness, and we support their loved ones through the illness and their grief.
