Bereavement Walking Program
The Bereavement Walking Program combines fresh air, exercise and companionship for those who have suffered the loss of someone in their life. The group, facilitated by trained hospice volunteers, walks at a casual pace for about an hour, wrapping up with a stop for coffee and continued conversation. Groups are offered on Wednesday and Saturday mornings in the spring, fall, and winter, and run for 8 weeks. There is no charge to participate.
