Journey into Lights of Love Walk
New in 2021, the Journey into Lights of Love walk will be Thursday, September 30, from 5:30 to 9 pm.

You may register to walk for $25 per adult or $10 per youth (children under 5 are free). Walkers will receive a t-shirt if registered by September 18 and a glow necklace.

Lights of Love Tree Lighting
The 20th annual Lights of Love tree lighting ceremony will begin at 5:30 pm on Thursday, November 18. This year’s ceremony will be outdoors on the Aspirus Riverview Hospital grounds just north of the emergency entrance at 410 Dewey Street in Wisconsin Rapids. Everyone is invited, and there is no fee to attend.

20th Anniversary of Lights of Love
A community tradition since 2001, Lights of Love celebrates our loved ones through the purchase of lights in their honor or memory. All proceeds are used by Aspirus Riverview Foundation to support initiatives focused on our community’s greatest health needs, including substance abuse, behavioral health, food systems and cancer.

For $3 each, anyone may purchase a Light of Love. There are also opportunities to donate $25 (silver level) or $100+ (gold level) in honor or memory of someone special.

Lights of Love may be purchased year-round and shine throughout the holiday season on the Lights of Love tree on the north side of Aspirus Riverview Hospital. Order forms are available at or by calling the Aspirus Riverview Foundation office at 715.421.7488.
