Walk in Remembrance at the 9th Annual Beach Stroll

October 26, 2017 | Treasure Health

Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation’s Memory Walk to be held Saturday, Nov. 18

FT PIERCE, Fla. (October 26, 2017) – Join us in a walk for remembrance and healing at Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation’s 9th Annual Beach Stroll followed by a buffet breakfast, sponsored by Archie’s Seabreeze in Fort Pierce. Proceeds benefit Treasure Health Grief Support programs.

After a pre-walk warm up at Archie’s, strollers will be able to walk a one-mile route along the beachside before returning to the popular outdoor venue for breakfast.  This walk is an opportunity for individuals and families to honor loved ones and the grieving in our community as they go through their journey of healing. All strollers and participants are encouraged to bring a photo of their loved one to put on the memory wall.

Other opportunities for event attendees include purchasing and decorating luminaries for $10 to be displayed in the breakfast area, memorial signs for $15 to be placed along the path and hummingbird wind spinners for $25, which can be brought home as a lasting memorial. There will also be a rock painting station, sponsored by True Crew Dance Company, where participants of all ages can paint a rock in memory of a loved one and place it along the path or take it home. During the breakfast, there will be an opportunity to learn more about Treasure Health Grief Support, mingle with friends and purchase tickets to win great items in a fun raffle.

“The Beach Stroll is a community-oriented event where all ages can participate,” said Jacki Nardone, Director of Counseling and Pediatric Services. “Because of fundraisers like this, we are able and continue to offer comfort and support services to those who have experienced the loss of a loved one.”

Tickets for the 9th Annual Beach Stroll are $20 for adults, $5 for kids 5-18, and free for kids 4 and under. The first 100 people to purchase a ticket will get a beach mat and beach cup holder! Registration is at 8:30 a.m. with the stroll starting at 9 a.m. Pets are also welcome.  Register online at treasurehealth.org/beach-stroll/.

A Message from Our CEO

Susan de Cuba

President and Chief Executive Officer

Few creatures inspire as much wonder as the hummingbird. Tiny, yet strong enough to migrate 500 miles across the Gulf of Mexico, this brilliant bird is the ultimate symbol of resilience. So it’s only fitting that we have incorporated a hummingbird into our new look and logo to symbolize our organization’s life-affirming mission.

Under the Treasure Coast Hospice name, we have grown our services beyond our cornerstone hospice program to include palliative care, grief support counseling and specialized pediatric care. To better reflect our expanded scope of community services, we have changed the name of our parent organization to Treasure Health, while our flagship hospice program will continue to be called Treasure Coast Hospice.

Hospice will always be the heart of our mission. The same outstanding care the community has known since 1982 will continue. The experience we’ve gained during the past 35 years translates well to other services that improve quality of life. Our full spectrum of support includes Treasure Coast Hospice, Treasure Health Palliative Care, Treasure Health Pediatric Care and Treasure Health Grief Support.

With all of our services, our goal is to empower patients and families with the knowledge and support they need to make every moment count.  Guiding our efforts is a caring community of health professionals, volunteers and donors. Like me, they believe that in all stages of illness, everyone deserves to experience the best possible quality of life.

With our comprehensive, compassionate approach to palliative care, hospice services and grief support, we are building communities that allow people to drive their own destinies for the highest quality of life in every health circumstance.

We are excited to embrace a fresh brand that helps us promote our life-affirming philosophy and look forward to having you join us as a trusted partner in supporting our community’s healthcare journey.
