Our first Walk to Remember was held on November 12, 2016!
The Compassionate Friends RVA welcomed over 100 chapter and community members who walked in memory of someone they had loved and lost, including, children, siblings, grandchildren, parents, other relatives, and friends. We had speakers, a dove release, therapy dogs, fun activities, fellowship, and a picnic lunch!
