Walk Route

The start and finish of the LLW Boston is the Gazebo space at Mother’s Rest. The Walk is an out and back loop from the Gazebo to the JFK Library, 1 mile each way. The walk is 2 miles total. For your convenience, we have a Water Stop and Portable Toilets at the turn-around location.

We recognize a lot of our walkers are people with liver disease so we encourage you to go as far as you are comfortable and turn back when you feel ready. Additionally, some people choose to skip the walk and sit with us at the Start/Finish area. That’s fine too!

Free Hepatitis C Testing

Did you know that many people with chronic Hepatitis C do not know they are infected? People with chronic Hepatitis C can live for decades without symptoms or feeling sick. Getting tested can help people learn if they are infected and get them into lifesaving care and treatment.

The American Liver Foundation New England Division, in conjunction with Harbor Health Services, Inc., is excited to offer free Hepatit

is C testing at our Liver Life Walk Boston. While at the walk, please stop by the testing station: you can try your hand at some liver educational games and get tested to see if you have ever been exposed to the Hepatitis C virus. If anyone has been exposed, follow-up care will be available through local medical partners.

Get tested. Get treated. Get cured.
