Celebrate Life!

Sunday, June 11
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

Huntington Bank presents Hospice of the Western Reserve's Walk to Remember 2017. Now in its sixth year, our largest fundraiser is open to anyone wishing to honor and celebrate the memory of a loved one or a caregiver, and to make a difference in the lives of those who are living with a serious illness.

Registration is $12 for children, $25 for adults and $65 for family (includes two adults and three children ages 4-12, children 3 and under are free). This includes all-day admission to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Rainforest, t-shirt, entertainment and much more.

New this year: Come back and join us for our special Closing Ceremony at 9:30 a.m.! Walkers will enjoy festivities and food from our generous sponsors The Greenhouse Tavern, Lago, TownHall, The Cuyahoga Group, Creekside Restaurant and Bar and Coleone’s Restaurant.  Don’t forget to e-mail a picture of your loved one to bmurphy@hospicewr.org to be included in our Celebration of Life by June 6.

Other Ways to Help

Comfort Buddies by Warmies

For every $100 raised or donated to Walk to Remember 2017, one of 8 of our adorable Comfort Buddies by Warmies, will be given to a Hospice of the Western Reserve patient. Comfort Buddies are used to provide reassurance and meaning to a variety of patients, from pediatrics to dementia care. We’ve found that Comfort Buddies improve patient experience by reducing agitation and restlessness and provide an overall sense of wellbeing.
