The Celebration Walk has been held each year in May for the past two decades to honor loved ones who have died. Hundreds of local families attend annually to participate in free children’s activities, enjoy live music and release butterflies in memory of loved ones. The event is known for the thousands of luminaries lit at dusk across Midland Care’s 22-acre campus.
The Celebration Walk is free and open to anyone in the community, including those who have never used Midland Care’s services or who are visiting campus for the first time. The event does not feature a scheduled or timed walk, but is an opportunity for the public to stroll Midland Care’s scenic campus.
The theme of Midland Care’s Celebration Walk is Celebrating the Dash of Life, honoring the dash between the day we are born and the day we die.
This is our major fundraiser for the year and funds are used to provide hospice care anyone who needs it, regardless of ability to pay. A single gift of $1,000 will provide 7 days of in-home hospice care. Each year, Midland Care provides over $500,000 in uncompensated care, keeping the promise we made 40 years ago to accept all referrals.
