Note: After much deliberation and watching the forecast closely all week, we’ve decided to postpone the walk until May 20. Strong wind, cold temperatures, and rain are all expected Saturday, and that’s not ideal for an outdoor event. We hope you’ll join us on Saturday, May 20, and we thank you for being flexible!
We are hosting a free one-mile walk at Morsches Park to raise awareness about pregnancy and child loss on
Saturday, April 1. Saturday, May 20
Families will be able to see their baby or child’s name written on a sign, hear their name spoken, and participate in a balloon release at the conclusion of the walk.
One in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage or stillbirth. How can something so common be a topic we all shy away from? Every pregnancy carries a risk of not taking a baby home nine months later, and there are very few resources available for women who experience this devastating loss or the tragic loss of a child. We want to come alongside families that have experienced pregnancy and child loss to give them the space and resources they need to grieve.
