The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is hosting its annual "Walk to Remember" this Sunday, June 13 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The annual event was held virtually last year due to the ongoing pandemic. However, at this year's walk, which marks the 10th anniversary, more than 2,000 guests are expected to gather to celebrate the lives of their loved ones. 

To ensure proper social distancing throughout the event, an official kick-off ceremony will not be held. Instead those hoping to participate can arrive anytime between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. and begin walking. 

Participants are encouraged to place their loved one’s name on a ribbon as part of a memorial art project at the Welcome Plaza. Commemorative team photos will be taken at two photo stations located at the Elephant Crossing and near the exit of the Wilderness Trek.

The event is sponsored by the Oswald Companies, and benefits Hospice of the Western Reserve. An organization that funds services not covered by insurance including a pediatric hospice team, music and art therapy programs and community grief support.

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is located at 3900 Wildlife Way.
