Stephy’s Place Hosts Third Annual Mourning Walk

Stephy’s Place: A Support Center For Grief and Loss recently hosted its third annual Mourning Walk at Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park in Long Branch. Hundreds of participants walked to Pier Village and back, in remembrance of their deceased loved ones. The event signified the walkers’ intention to remember their deceased loved one and continue living with loss. Like the mourning process itself, the walk is a uniquely, personal experience. Following the 3-mile walk was a short meditation and butterfly release.

For five years, Stephy’s Place, located at 210 West Front St. in Red Bank, has provided free support services to anyone enduring grief and loss. All the funds raised by the Mourning Walk will be used to grow and maintain the grief support services that Stephy’s Place provides to hundreds of people. Stephy’s Place, a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization that relies on the generosity of others, provides 40 free support groups that are all loss-specific: spouse, child, parent, sibling, addiction, suicide, divorce, COVID-19.
