Grief support group enjoys kayaking on Rehoboth Bay

July 26, 2022

Delaware Hospice’s Spousal Loss Support Group members and Bereavement Counselor Ellen Tolbert recently enjoyed a day of relaxation and fun on Rehoboth Bay, thanks to Delmarva Board Sport Adventures.

Opening up the Delmarva Board Sport Adventures fleet to those journeying through grief is something owner Janis Markopoulos has felt led to do. She was happy to invite Tolbert and her support group to kayak as a way to provide peace and healing to all.

“This unique opportunity for grief support fellowship was very beneficial to all who attended,” said Tolbert. "Members wrote messages to their loved ones on the inside of shells and released them into the water while sharing their thoughts at the time. The power of peer support forever amazes me.”

Delmarva Board Sport Adventures is the area’s original paddleboarding and windsurfing adventure company.

Delaware Hospice extends thanks to Markopoulos and her amazing team at Delmarva Board Sport Adventures for their hospitality, and for allowing the Spousal Loss Support Group members to spend a peaceful day on the water.
