Walk to Remember
Join Mercy Perinatal Hospice and Bereavement for the 13th annual local Walk to Remember—an event dedicated to babies who die each year through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death—as part of the National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in October.
The walk also symbolically joins people nationwide who are working to raise awareness of perinatal grief and ensure sensitive care is given to parents who experience the death of a baby.
Date: Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013
Time:Please join us around 1:30 p.m. to personalize a gift. Children are also invited to participate in an activity to honor their special baby.
Where: Mercy East Tower Auditorium, 1111 6th Ave., Des Moines
Family, friends and children are welcome to attend. A walk on Mercy’s Central Campus will follow the service, ending in the Memory Garden where the timeless love of our children will be honored at the Christmas Box Angel statue. After the walk, please join us in the East Tower Auditorium for a reception.
