Devin's Dash

After a courageous battle with cancer, Gregory “Devin” Sheaffer, a beloved colleague to all at Hilton Head Health (H3) and dear friend to many, passed away on August 26th, 2010. As a massage therapist at H3, Devin’s compassion for our Guests and dedication to his work was clear in everything he said and did. One Guest put it best when she said, “I didn’t know whether to schedule a massage with Devin for the massage itself or to just spend time with him.” He was the type of person who had the ability to connect and befriend anyone he met. He will truly be missed but never forgotten.

In honor and loving memory of Devin, H3 will be hosting its fourth annual Devin’s Dash Memorial 5K through the scenic paths of Shipyard Plantation on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 8 a.m. The 5K run/walk will begin and end at Hilton Head Health located at 14 Valencia Road, Hilton Head, S.C. 29928. The race is open to all runners, walkers and stroller drivers. After the event, there will be a poolside party where we’ll offer post-race snacks and smoothies, announce the race winners and raffle off prizes. Event proceeds will send local boys and girls with cancer to an overnight kids camp called Happiness Is Camping, where they will spend a week enjoying what it means to be a kid.

We welcome and invite ALL to come out and join us as we celebrate Devin’s life!

2012 Recap

It was a beautiful Hilton Head morning as 175 registered runners lined up to kick off the 3rd Annual Devin’s Dash Memorial 5K. The crowed contained former and current Hilton Head Health guests and staff, local runners, members of Devin’s family, and visitors to the island. The atmosphere was full of excitement and Pure Energy as the runners made their way through Shipyard plantation. All around there was encouragement and determination as participants pushed toward their goal of crossing the finish line in front of Hilton Head Health.

And at the finish line there were smoothies, muffins and raffle prizes waiting! Participants celebrated their achievement, some who had never participated in a 5K before! It was a great morning and event which benefited the American Cancer Society. After the raffle prizes were handed out and the party was winding down, a check was presented to Happiness Is Camping for $5,000!! Thanks to all of the awesome runners and enthusiastic volunteers for making this event a huge success. A good time was had by all and Devin’s memory was celebrated with Pure Energy!
