WHAT IS THE CELEBRATION WALK?
Midland Care’s Celebration Walk is held each year to honor loved ones who have been lost. The event is known for the thousands of luminaries lit at dusk across Midland Care’s 22-acre campus. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Celebration Walk will be virtual and interactive!


WHEN IS THE CELEBRATION WALK?
We will hold a live stream event on Friday, September 25th.  We invite you to join in and participate via our website and Facebook page.  Your loved one does not have to have been on Midland Care services to be remembered.

This event will provide you the opportunity to celebrate your loved one at home with friends and family while interacting with us during the live stream event as we remember them.


ON CELEBRATION WALK NIGHT
7:45 PRESHOW · 8:00 LIVE BEGINS • 8:45 READING OF THE NAMES

During the live stream you will be able to interact and share your celebration and experiences via the Celebration Walk Facebook Group. (Search Midland Care Celebration Walk on Facebook). In the group, you can expect to see stories shared, featured music, and messages of how your donation makes an impact in the communities we serve.


LUMINARIES – CELEBRATE THEIR DASH KIT
Each year the luminaries and sidewalk messages are truly the heart of this event. We are inviting you to take part in this year’s lighting of the luminaries at your home. Your donation of $10 per remembered name will provide you with a special “Celebrate Their Dash” kit. Our theme is to celebrate the dash – we all have a date we are born and a date we die – it is the dash between that represents how we touched lives on earth.

Your kit will provide you with everything you need (luminary bag, tea light, sand, sidewalk chalk and luminary card with your loved one’s name) to celebrate at home.  As in years past we want to recognize those who served in the military.

New this year, we will have a special luminary card to remember a beloved pet. Your kit will include instructions so you can share your celebration during our live stream event.

You will be able to pick up your kit September 21st – 23rd at your choice of location – Ottawa, Lawrence, Valley Falls, Kansas City and Topeka. You can also elect to have your kit mailed to you, a shipping fee will be charged.
