This makes too much sense. Even in my area cemeteries, there’s always someone walking, jogging, biking through. But way too small to be charging admission!
I can see the slogans now… “It’s a gentle, peaceful walk”… “Celebrate life amongst the dead”… “This ain’t your mother’s Scooby-Doo graveyard!”… OK, so they need some work.

Bring on the next key-athon, I say!!
