CLEVELAND — Hospice of the Western Reserve is holding its eighth annual Walk to Remember to honor the memory of a loved one and make a difference in the lives of those living with serious illnesses.

The walk helps support Hospice of the Western Reserve, an organization that provides palliative end-of-life care, caregiver support, and bereavement services throughout Northern Ohio.

Families donate money to walk in honor of their loved one or someone who's still battling a serious illness and in turn helping raise money for other families using Hospice care.

Funds raised at the Walk to Remember help patients cover special services not reimbursable by Medicare and private insurance including pediatric hospice care, art and music therapy, bereavement support visits, grief and trauma support in local schools and more.

The 2018 Walk to Remember raised more than $230,000.

The walk takes place at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on June 9.

Those participating in the walk will receive all-day admission to the zoo.
