DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) - The Duncan Regional Hospital hosted a special fundraising event to give honor to the loved ones people have lost over the years.

This is the seventh year the hospital has put on the "Walk to Remember" event.

Participants put the names of their lost loved ones on ribbons
 and after the walk, those names were read, and the ribbons pinned on a ceremonial wreath.

About 70 people joined Thursday
s walk, gathering together for an evening of communal remembrance.

It was a night event chair Darlene Miller said was important for the community.

"Everybody wants their person, their loved one, to be remembered, and its just a way that we can take this time to say, 'we're walking for you, we remember you,'  and we share it with our friends, she said.

All proceeds from the event provided funds for Chisholm Trail Hospice, a not-for-profit hospice group that helps area families.
