Join us for a Special 40th Anniversary Celebration of Life!


Walk to Remember, co-sponsored by Huntington Bank and Medical Mutual of Ohio, will be held at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on Sunday, June 9. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 9:15 a.m. The event benefits Hospice of the Western Reserve and is open anyone wishing to celebrate the memory of a loved one. Registration includes all-day admission to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Rainforest and fun for the whole family!  

Walk to Remember allows HWR to provide special programs that are not reimbursed by insurance such as children’s grief support camps, art and music therapy, pediatric hospice care and many more. These services simply would not be possible without support from our friends in the community!

A variety of family entertainment is planned, including team photos, raffles, crafts for kids, face painting, live music and more. Registration is $25 for adults and $12 for children under age 12. A special family rate is also available. Register your team online today at, or contact Monica Cowans at 216.383.3714, or

Returning this year are Comfort Buddies (trade name, Warmies by Intelex). For each $100 raised by a team or individual beyond the registration fee, a lavender-scented Comfort Buddy will be delivered to a patient. The therapeutic plush animals reduce agitation and provide a sense of wellbeing to pediatric patients, those living with advanced dementia and many others.
