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 was virtual and interactive!
WHEN IS THE CELEBRATION WALK?
The Celebration Walk was held Friday, September 25th. We invite you to view the service via YouTube.
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.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
You can help make the Celebration Walk a success by your personal financial gift, by being our advocate and fundraising on our behalf with your story.
