SAVE THE DATE Friday, October 15, 2021 | 6:30 p.m.
The H.E.A.R.T.strings Perinatal Bereavement & Perinatal Palliative Care program of Northside Hospital invites you, your family and friends to join us for the 17th Annual Atlanta Walk to Remember, which will be held virtually on Friday, October 15 at 6:30 p.m.
While we are virtual once again this year, we have some wonderful things planned for this year’s Walk. Our theme, “Be the Light”, provides an opportunity for each of us to be a light of hope to each other throughout the grief experience, especially as we are still navigating the COVID pandemic. This year’s event will take place on National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day, October 15th. Like last year, you are invited to gather in small groups around your homes and walk together in memory of your babies and in awareness of perinatal loss. There will be a short video and candle lighting that you will be invited to access live through an online link, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on October 15th.
Those who register by the deadline will receive candles that they will light at 7:00 p.m. so that we can all participate in the Wave of Light, a global event that takes place around the world in recognition of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day. By lighting a candle at 7:00 p.m. in your time zone and keeping it lit for an hour, we will help to create a continuous “wave of light” across all time zones around the world.
As always, registration is free and will open later this summer. If you or someone you know would like to be a corporate sponsor, please let us know. We can be reached at email@example.com. Coming together with this community in a ritual of remembrance can provide meaning and peace. We look forward to celebrating and remembering our babies together with you.
