The Compassionate Friends of Ottawa County invites bereaved parents, siblings, relatives and friends to register now for a one-mile “Walk to Remember” Sunday, July 20, at 1 p.m.
As the world’s largest self-help bereavement organization, The Compassionate Friends offers friendship, understanding, and hope to families that have experienced the death of a child. There are more than 650 chapters in the United States, including all 50 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and Guam. The local event is patterned after The Compassionate Friends National Walk to Remember® in Chicago, Illinois, where as many as 1,500 are expected to participate. Dozens of chapters across the country are expected to hold a local Walk to Remember during 2014.
