Our 14th Annual Memories Walk

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Sunday, October 15th, and everyone who supported us for our 14th Annual Memories Walk!

Over 300 community members wore teal Memories That Move Us t-shirts and participated in this family-friendly, three-mile walk, which followed Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington. Many participants took time to stop along the route to sign our “We Remember” banner with special dedications, messages of support, and personal memories. We all felt a strong sense of community as we walked together up Mass. Ave. to celebrate TCR and to remember those in our lives who have died.

Following our three-mile walk, we celebrated with food, entertainment, and an inspirational program at Arlington Town Hall.

The Smiles-Rodriguez family

We send a big thank you to the Smiles-Rodriguez family for sharing their poignant personal story during the opening remarks.

We simply could not do this vital work without the support of our entire community, and we extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this year’s event such a resounding success. Thanks to you, we were able to raise $80,000 to support the hope-giving programs of The Children’s Room.

We were so grateful to share this wonderful day with so many of you. Thank you for gathering with us in support of our mission to create safe, caring communities, so that no child, teen, or family has to grieve alone.
