Lake Merritt, Oakland
A Community Healing Event - Open to All
(The Walk is a "rain or shine" event. We're hoping for a dry morning.)
The Walk to Remember is held at Lake Merritt, near Children’s Fairyland. Use 699 Bellevue Ave., Oakland as GPS directions to get you close. We’ll be behind Fairyland past the bandshell toward the water's edge.
10:00 a.m. - Registration Opens. Check yourself in, get your T-shirt and check out our various activities. We will have coffee, tea and pastries available.
10:45 a.m. - Healing Circle begins
11:15 a.m. - Walk Begins. You can walk the entire lake, part of it, or just join us for the activities and healing circle. (There will be volunteers at our meeting space to watch belongings if you don't want to drag them around the lake.)
Please join me for the Walk to Remember to celebrate the life of a loved one who has died and to help children build resilience as they grieve.
The Walk to Remember is a community healing event open to everyone. The Walk is also a fundraiser to support Circle of Care, a program to normalize feelings around death and loss, making sure that kids, like mine, know they are not alone in their sadness and grief and giving them the tools they need to speak openly about what’s too often considered unspeakable.
I invite you and your family to join my kids and me for this healing experience. And if you can, please make a donation to Circle of Care so no child has to walk their grief journey alone.
