Lake Merritt, Oakland
A Community Healing Event - Open to All
I hope this day finds each of you healthy and happy! It is time again for Circle of Care's 10th annual Walk to Remember, and I am calling on you to help to support this wonderful program!
Join the Walk to Remember to celebrate the life of a loved one you have lost and to help children build resilience as they grieve. The event begins with a healing circle ritual followed by a 3 mile walk around beautiful Lake Merritt.
No cost to participate though those who would like to make a donation or fundraise are invited to do so. Proceeds benefit EBAC's Circle of Care program.
I am unable to walk this year as I will be out of town, but I am still fundraising for this important program. This year, I am honoring my mother who was a teenager when her mother dies from ALS. She didn't have a lot of support at the time and she could have benefited from a program like this.
And also all the local children we serve at the East Bay Agency for Children who have experienced the loss of loved ones due to deportation, imprisonment or community violence.
Please consider joining in on the walk, fundraising yourself or contributing. I would really appreciate it.
Help Spread the Word!
