About 2022 Walk to Remember

Our 11th annual Walk to Remember will be held on Sunday, June 12 at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo!  The Walk has raised more than $1.6 million since its inception in 2012. The monies raised help to improve the care and services HWR provides. We'd love for your family to join us as we celebrate life and honor the memory of those we hold close to our hearts who are not physically with us!

Why we walk

While patients' medical care is generally covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance, many of the special programs and services we offer to enhance the patients' end-of-life care are only possible through the generosity of community members like yourself.  Monies raised by the Walk to Remember help us provide programs such as

  • Pediatric Hospice
  • Comprehensive bereavement services
  • Art and music therapy
  • Customized programs for veterans and much more

Join us

Form a team by inviting your family and friends to walk with you.  Creating a team allows you to tell your story and why you support HWR.

​Registration includes:

  • All-day admission to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Rainforest
  • A commemorative Walk to Remember water bottle holder

Wristbands are required for admission of each walker and will be distributed on Walk day at Registration from 7:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  Wristbands will expire at 1:00 p.m.  and are only good for Sunday, June 12, 2022.
