A Walk to Remember

Hi all!

Thanks for showing interest in A Walk to Remember.

This walk will bring awareness to the loss of so many babies, due to miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss. 1 in 4 women experience this type of loss. Many of these women suffer this loss in silence. Baby loss is a subject that no one wants to talk about because it is so sad. However, by not talking about it, a silence is placed on the families that have had to suffer a loss, who are grieving every day of their lives. This walk will allow those of us who have grieved this type of loss to do so openly. You may have lost a child, you may be married to a women who lost a child, your mother, your sister, your aunt, your niece even your next door neighbor may have lost a child. Are you or they suffering in silence. Come join us on Sunday, October 16th 2011 to remember these children and break the silence on baby loss.

The profits of this walk will go to Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope. Faces of Loss was created by a women who lost a baby. She created this website to allow other women who have lost a child to post a face with their story, to connect with other baby loss moms, to help a woman feel that she is not alone in this grief. That she is unfortunately part of a larger group of woman that she ever would have imagined.

We will have several different ways for you to register for the walk. There will be a registration fee of $20.00. This fee will provide you with a shirt commemorating the day that we walked to remember, refreshments after a 1.5 mile walk and a balloon that you can personalize for your baby or babies that we will release at the end of the day.

More to come on how to pay the registration fee
