Adirondack Man on Life Journey and Special Connection to Hospice
The Adirondacks are full of amazing people who look out for each other. It's a privilege to highlight these folks in some small way. My hope is that by telling the story of Norman Briggs I'm able to make a human connection to High Peaks Hospice. The organization is not often thought about until they're needed. Maybe this video will inspire you to keep them in your consciousness and spread the word about the important work they do.
I want to thank Luella and Norman Briggs for allowing me into their Jay, NY home and sharing their story. I'm honored by the bond and friendship we've formed. I'll be back for donuts soon! As long as Pastor Charlie doesn't eat them all first!
The video is dedicated to my late stepmother Susan Corneau Clement who received care from High Peaks Hospice in her last days. The peace, dignity, and comfort given to her and my family during that trying time will never be forgotten. Thank you.

Annual Radio Day Swim!
High Peaks Hospice Radio Day is a 14-hour radio-telethon held each year in June. It's the organization's biggest fundraising event. Broadcasting from the Redfield Room at Adirondack Health on 105.5FM, 102.1FM, 920AM, and WNBZ 1240AM, Radio Day reaches thousands of people. Thanks to the generous support of many local businesses, organizations, and individuals, they raise over $50,000 each year to support their mission of dignity, comfort, and peace at the end of life.
I volunteer as guest host each year and usually end up taking a dip in a nearby lake for the cause! Good fun!
