For 10 years, Bethesda Hospice Care’s Annual Memorial Walk has always upheld the standard and honor of remembering loved ones who have died. The Memorial Walk was renamed in 2021 in memory of Brian Kayman, a dedicated employee of Bethesda Hospice Care who sadly lost his battle with COVID-19 in 2020. While it bears his name, the Kayman 5K Memorial Walk is designed for everyone – to remember those who have died, grieve their passing, and honor their legacy. As always, the ceremony and walk are free and open to the community. We hope you’ll join us at this reverent and joyful event, where we can mourn our losses, celebrate the lives of our loved ones, and move toward peace and healing.

On Saturday, September 30, we invite you to join us at the Smith Shelter in Queeny Park – 550 Weidman Rd. St. Louis, MO (enter Queeny Park from Weidman Rd. and follow signs to Parking Lot B).
