2024 Walk To Remember
Sunday, October 13th, 2024 – 2:00 pm
Unity Village – 1901 NW Blue Parkway
Unity Village, MO, 64065
Each October, memorial walks are held across the nation in honor of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.
Emilia’s Wings is honored to offer this remembrance ceremony to all past and present BLOOM support group members and to those who are interested in attending our monthly meetings. BLOOM is a monthly support group for parents who have lost a baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss. This year’s Walk To Remember will be held on Sunday, October 13th at 2:00 pm.
We look forward to remembering your babies with you and celebrating their lives in a meaningful and special way. By gathering together to walk in our babies’ names, we keep their memories alive and offer support to one another. Whether marking a recent loss, or one that occurred several years ago, we encourage parents and loved ones to come walk for the steps our babies will never take.
