Desha County Compassionate Friends 20th annual Walk to Remember will be held at 7 a.m. Saturday, July 20, at the Dumas Community Center indoor track at Dumas.


“All parents, grandparents and siblings of a deceased child, supportive friends, family members, churches and organizations are invited to join us as we walk to remember all children gone too soon,” a spokesman said in a news release.


“Whether you walk the two miles or a couple of hundred feet is not important, what matters is that you have taken this time to join with families who are walking the same journey with you as in the past years,” the spokesman said.


Participants are asked to wear T-shirts in memory of their loved ones or a Compassionate Friends T-shirt.


There is no admission for the walk, however, anyone who wishes to give a donation in memory of a child may do so. Donations may be mailed to Desha County Compassionate Friends, P. O. Box 482, Dumas, Ark., 71639.


Desha County Compassionate Friends is a national nonprofit, self-help support organization that offers friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings grieving the death of a child of any age, from any cause.
