The Hospice Walk to Remember is a touching
tribute to those who have ended life's journey.

Memorial pickets line the walking path, each
displaying the name of a person someone has
loved and lost. 
Each and every picket serves as a
lasting memorial 
to those we honor every year.
oin us and walk for remembrance and reflection. 

We are so proud to celebrate over 30 years
of dedication to Sparrow Hospice Services!

Please check back at a later date
for 2020 event information.
