Walk/Run to Remember Loved Ones

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Walkers and runners are honoring lost loved ones today in an event hosted by PeaceHealth .

Several people registered at Sacred Heart Medical Center to participate in the second annual Walk/Run to Remember.

Organizers say the $15 registration fee will be donated to the hospice programs to help with the bereavement programs.

Karin Clarke says she’s participating in the walk to remember her 2-year-old son.

“It’s an opportunity for us to remember our kids and people that we’ve lost that we loved. It’s an opportunity to be together and support each other,” said Clarke.

Participants made memory flags before the race in honor of who they were walking for.
