In recognition of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in October, Northside Hospital hosts the annual Atlanta Walk to Remember. Parents, families, friends and health care professionals are encouraged to attend to remember the babies that they’ve lost and help raise public awareness of pregnancy and infant loss.
“This event is an opportunity for parents to commemorate their loss with the support of family and friends,” said Melissa Petersen, clinician, Northside Hospital H.E.A.R.T.strings and Perinatal Loss Office. “Many people join this community not by choice but by circumstance. It is a great day to come together not only to remember but to celebrate our babies.”
Each year, more than 300 people participate in the Atlanta Walk to Remember, which is filled with special, commemorative activities. The free event begins with a short program and is followed by a 0.4 -mile walk. Although the event receives strong support from Northside Hospital, anyone whose life has been touch by perinatal loss, regardless of where, is invited to participate. Children are welcome.
The event is free to participate; however, donations will be accepted and can be made online during registration or at the event. T-shirts and car magnets will be available for sale at the event. Proceeds from sales, donations and sponsorships help to keep the event free for all to attend.
