By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)- Getting set to celebrate life, community volunteers held their annual Celebration Walk Kick-off Breakfast Thursday.

The event helped Midland Care gear up for its 19th annual Celebration Walk. The Celebration Walk is scheduled for Friday, May 8.

“It’s all about celebrating life,” said Karren Weichert, Midland Care CEO. “The people that we have loved and lost and the people even we have with us today. Just celebrating each other.”

Recently Midland care has added home health and senior services to their list of services offered, and the money raised will continues to allow services to the growing number of people they support.

“It’s really important to us to have a successful fundraiser because we see those numbers grow each year,” said Weichert. “So as we grow so does the services and continuum we offer. We see more people in need.”

WIBW General Manager Jim Ogle is this year’s honorary chairperson for the walk.
