LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

It'll be a walk to remember this Saturday for many here in Deep East Texas. 

The Hospice in the Pines will host their 12th annual "Memorial Walk."

Beginning at the Joe W. Elliot House, racers will gather for the 3-K fun run after the walk.

"To extend the opportunities to the family members who have lost love ones that were on hospice, to memorialize their loved one through this walk," said Napolean Shaw, the administrative director for the Joe W. Elliot House. 

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the walk starts at 9 a.m.

Event organizers said after the race, balloons will be released as a tribute to those who died.
