WALK OF REMEMBRANCE*
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13th | 8:30 AM
The conference begins with a “Walk of Remembrance” from the DeVos Place, across Gillett Bridge to Ah-Nab-Awen Park to honor those who have passed from their burn injuries and to offer a time to remember our own losses related to burn injuries. It is important to remember our losses so we can reconnect with life and continue to heal-which is the goal for the next few days. Firefighters and Volunteers will be escorting attendees along the walk route on this symbolic opening of the 30th Annual Phoenix World Burn Congress. The Walk of Remembrance will also serve to remind the general public that burn care and prevention are critical.
As we return from the park, we will transition from a place of remembrance towards a place of celebration as we kick-off our 30th Annual Phoenix World Burn Congress.
We will leave the hotel staging area at 8:30 am. After the remembrance walk, we will return to the DeVos Place for our Opening Celebration. Casual dress and comfortable shoes encouraged.
