On May 6, a walk on Clearwater Beach will take on new meaning—one that celebrates life and honors the memory of loved ones lost. The Suncoast Hospice Beach Stroll will help those dealing with loss to find peace and to remember and honor family and friends dear to their hearts. The community is invited to form teams so they can walk and offer support to each other. The walk begins at 9 a.m. at the Palm Pavilion.
