Walk to Remember

Beebe Healthcare Perinatal Loss Support Services will host the 18th Annual “Walk to Remember” at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 9th, at the George H. P. Smith Park, Block House Pond, in Lewes.  In case of rain, the event will be held the following Sunday.

The "Walk to Remember" is held annually to offer families the opportunity to honor the memory of babies who have died through tubal pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal, or infant death. Beebe’s event is the only "Walk to Remember" held in the State of Delaware to specifically commemorate pregnancy and infant loss. Similar walks take place nationwide each fall in honor of October’s designation as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

Participants may pre-register below or register at the Blockhouse Pond pavilion on the day of the walk. Attendees will gather at Pond pavilion before the half-mile walk, and then proceed as a group along the paved walkway around the pond. At the end of the walk, a short memorial service will take place to honor the memory of babies who have died through tubal pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal, and infant death.

Parents wishing to have the names of their infant(s) included in the program will need to submit a registration form prior to October 1st. Parents and grandparents who pre-register below prior to October 1st will receive a memorial T-shirt at no cost based on availability (early registration is encouraged).  Friends, other family members and supporters may purchase a T-shirt for $10. 

For more information about the walk, to register, to provide names of infants, or to provide contributions, contact Barbara Rogers or Terri Wyatt at Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing by calling (302) 645-3251.
