600 miles

Six hundred miles. That is the distance that Kelvin, an 18 year old dying of cancer, traveled to reach Kimbilio Hospice.

50 Reasons to Run

In honor of World Hospice Day and to raise awareness of Living Room’s Kimbilio Hospice, on October 4, we will be hosting the 2nd Annual Kimbilio Hospice Run, which will begin and end on the Living Room grounds. The word “Kimbilio” in Kiswahili means “refuge” or more literally, “a place to run to.” With this in mind, the theme of this run is “A Place to Run to… Worth Running for.” The stories presented are of Living Room guests who have helped to shape the hospice, and we believe they are worth running for. We encourage you to read and share these stories.
