2021 Walk to Remember


Sunday, Jun. 12, 2022


7:30AM - 3PM

Join us for our 10th annual Walk to Remember presented by Oswald Companies on Sunday, June 13 at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Since its inception in 2012, the Walk has raised more than $1.6 million to improve the care and services HWR provides. We’d love for your family to join us as we celebrate life and honor the memory of those we hold close to our hearts.

We will follow Cleveland Metroparks Zoo safety protocols. Social distancing will be observed. If you are unable to join us at the zoo, you can still participate by walking in your neighborhood. Invite your “bubble” to participate in weekly walk activities and share your photos with us on Facebook! Tag @HospiceWR.

Registration is $25 per adult, $12 per child (ages 3-12) or $75 per family (two adults and up to three children) and includes all-day admission to both the zoo and RainForest. Consider sponsoring one of our tireless caregivers who continue to provide patient care during the pandemic by making a special donation. More information is available when you register at hospicewr.org/WTR.

Why we walk

While patients’ medical care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance, many special programs and services are only possible through the generosity of community members. Monies raised by the Walk help us to provide programs such as pediatric hospice, pre-hospice pain and symptom management for chronic illness, art and music therapy, comprehensive bereavement services, customized programs for veterans and pet therapy.

Form a team by inviting your family and friends to walk with you. Creating a team allows you to share your story and why you support Hospice of the Western Reserve with others. On our website, you can create your fundraising page, share your story and track your team’s progress. You can even share your page directly to your social networks right from your fundraising page!

Registration is open!

Get started at hospicewr.org/WTR. Registration includes all-day admission to the zoo and RainForest. Wristbands will be issued to each visitor for admission and you must enter the zoo by 1 p.m. Wristbands will be distributed via drive-through registration tents beginning at 7:30 a.m. No opening ceremony is planned this year, so your team can begin walking upon arrival, anytime between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Be sure to check the website for safety protocols, event day details, zoo maps, parking information and fundraising tips to create a successful team! See you June 12!
