Atrium Medical Center’s Help Endure a Loss (HEAL) Program will host its 19th Annual Walk to Remember at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 1. Registration begins at 1:30 p.m.
The event will take place at the HEAL Memory Garden on the Atrium Medical Center campus at One Medical Center Drive in Middletown. Anyone who has been touched by the death of a child, regardless of age or circumstance, is welcome to attend.
The HEAL Memory Garden, located on the east side of the hospital, is a quiet place where families can go to remember and celebrate the lives of children who have gone far too soon. It features the Angel of Hope monument, a nationally recognized symbol of hope and healing.
Guests are asked to park in front of the Atrium Family YMCA building entrance on Atrium Medical Center’s campus at 5750 Innovation Drive, Middletown, OH 45005. Registration and mementos for the walk will be available at the welcome station. The ½ mile walk will begin promptly at 2 p.m. followed by a memorial “reading of their names” and ceremonial balloon release at the garden.
