FORT PIERCE – More than 100 participants enjoyed an early morning walk at Treasure Coast Hospice’s 7th Annual Beach Stroll in Fort Pierce on February 27. The event, which began at Archie’s Seabreeze, raised funds to support grief support programs.

“The Beach Stroll has become an important annual tradition for the Fort Pierce community,” said Jacki Nardone, Director of Treasure Coast Hospice Counseling Services. “In addition to raising funds and awareness to support grief programs in our community, the event brings people who have been touched by a loss together so that they may help others grieving the passing of a loved one.”

Beach Stroll participants reflected on and paid tribute to the lives of their loved ones by displaying photos on a memory wall. Following the walk, TCH president and CEO Susan de Cuba presented a gift to Archie’s Seabreeze owner Patty McGee, who has hosted and sponsored the event for the past seven years after her own experience with hospice.

Other event sponsors included Haisley Funeral Home, Cigna and Nelsons Family Farm. Strollers enjoyed a brunch courtesy of Archie’s Seabreeze and a raffle.
