Walk For Healing 2023

May 1, 2023 to June 11, 2023

Grief and loss are part of the human condition and in times of loss, we often neglect our self-care. We invite you to take this opportunity to care for yourself as you join the WALK FOR HEALING virtual challenge. We hope by participating you can experience healing and connection while knowing that you are helping others as you support Hospice SLO County.
