Event description

Description

The MASSWalk2Remember is a 5k walk for any person who has lost a loved one. It's located on Deer Island in Winthrop, MA looking out toward Boston, and other Outer Harbor Islands. The purpose of this walk is to remember those who have passed and honor their presence in our lives as well as the journey of grief. It's about Remembrance and Resilience.

Started last year on behalf of The Compassionate Friends, a grief support group for parents and siblings, the walk has been expanded to include all individuals who are enduring a loss of someone dear to them. Grief is a universal experience, yet it can feel isolating for many as our individual relationship to those who have passed is completely unique. The inspiration behind MASSWalk2Remember is to have a single event that connects all bereaved, If you are a Parent, Sibling, Grandparent, Step Parent, Spouse, Partner, Aunt, Uncle, Cousin, Friend, Co-worker, Neighbor, Health or Home Care Provider or are supporting someone who has experienced a loss, Join Us, in this MASSWalk2Remember.

MA Speaker of the House Robert Deleo will provide an opening address.

A Photo Booth of Portraits Of Loss will be in attendance to facilitate inspiring pictures of grief, loss and love for individuals and families.

Blick Art Supplies has donated supplies for face painting for kids, and inscribing names on T-shirts

Commemorative Garden Signs Available for purchase to line the walking path with a photo & message in memory of your loved one
