Walk for Hospice


Join us for the 2nd Annual Walk for Hospice on Saturday, September 14th, at the Nordic Heritage Center, proudly presented by this year’s Event Sponsor, McCrum Family Holdings, LLC!


Last year, your incredible generosity and dedication helped us raise over $30,000 in support of the Aroostook House of Comfort! The mission of this exciting event is to raise funds for the Aroostook House of Comfort, promote community awareness, and celebrate the lives of those impacted by hospice. This year promises to be even more meaningful as we come together to walk, reflect, and celebrate with cherished family members, friends, and colleagues.

Walk for Hospice Dedication


A truly great doctor is hard to find, difficult to part with, and impossible to forget.


“We can't think of a better way to honor Dr. David Jones than to dedicate the Annual Hospice Walk in his memory. He provided dedicated, compassionate care to hospice patients in the county from 2005 until his death in October 2023 as the Hospice Medical Director. He provided medical care for hospice patients at home for several years and then at the Aroostook House of Comfort once it was built. He supported the hospice house wholeheartedly, believing it would make a huge difference in the comfort and care of our loved ones at the end of their lives when they are most vulnerable. He was and remains well respected for his numerous contributions to health care, both by the local communities and statewide. He loved all aspects of nature and participated in last year's Walk for Hospice. This year, we walk in his memory to honor his contributions to medicine and his legacy by supporting the Aroostook House of Comfort.” - Debbie Jones

What People Say About Us

During one of the most difficult seasons of my life (the loss of both my Mom and my brother), the Aroostook House of Comfort was a light in the dark. The compassion, love, and kindness shown to my Mom, my brother, and the rest of our family by each and every staff member and volunteer was truly a blessing. Taking part in the walk and helping to raise money to support such an amazing organization is an honor and a small way I can say "thank you."
