Those who have experienced the loss of someone close are invited to participate in Kelowna General Hospital’s Walk of Memories.

On Sunday, May 24 at Waterfront Park’s “The Dolphins” fountain, join an interactive and ceremonial walk (about 1 km) with four stations set up, where participants can stop and reflect on the life of a loved one.

Participants can begin walking anytime between 2- 2:45 p.m. The closing ceremony begins at 3:30 p.m. The route is family-friendly, wheelchair accessible, and volunteers will be available as walking partners.

This event is not a fundraiser. The busy pace of life doesn’t often allow us to adequately reflect on the lives of loved ones or personal healing. The Walk of Memories will help create space to do just that. Join others as they gather to walk in memory and celebration of the lives of loved ones. Music and refreshments will be included.

The Walk of Memories is organized by the KGH Spiritual Care Team in partnership with the BC Cancer Agency, the Central Okanagan Hospice Palliative Care Program, and the KGH Foundation.
