The Compassionate Friends RVA will hold its annual Walk to Remember on Saturday, September 16 from 9am – 2pm. This event is to honor the love we have for our children, siblings and grandchildren who left us too soon. The RVA chapter joins other chapters across the US in celebrating the lives of the family members we loved so much in life and miss so much in death.
They invite you to join them to walk to honor the memory of someone you have loved and lost, whether it’s your mom, dad, grandparent, other family member, friend, coworker, neighbor, teacher, mentor, fellow church member. This Walk to Remember is also open to all members of the community.
The theme for this year’s Walk is Love – our love lives on as we celebrate their lives and cherish our memories. Our lives were changed as a result of having known and loved them. While they are no longer physically here, their impact on our lives is with us every day. Join the walk and celebrate love for those we have lost.
The Walk program includes: Guest speaker: NY Times best-selling author Anna Whiston-Donaldson, family activities, dove release, Caring Canines – therapy dogs, a 2-mile Walk to Remember, picnic style lunch, raffle, memory booth (bring a photo to share), and bereavement resources
The Walk will not be cancelled or rescheduled! If it rains, the event will be moved inside the school.
The Location: Robious Elementary School, 2801 Robious Crossing Dr, Midlothian, VA 23113
