MORGANTOWN -

Hospice Care Corporation celebrated it's fourth annual "Hits for Hospice" event Saturday at White Park in Monongalia County.

The co-ed softball tournament is a fundraiser that aims to bring awareness to the Hospice in North Central West Virginia.

Six teams came out to participate in the event.
     
The winning team received $500, which is typically donated back to Hospice Care.

"We've been doing hospice the right way for 30 years. We're going on our 30th year, it's a mile marker for us," said Cynthia Woodyard, from Hospice Care. "We take care of patients even if they don't have a way to pay."

Hospice Cares is also hosting "Walk for Hospice" 5K at Prickett's Fort in Fairmont and at the Route 92 Rail Trail in Reedsville Sunday morning.
