CONWAY (Oct. 6, 2012) -- The fifth annual Walk to Remember will be held today, October 6, at Conway High School Football Stadium.
The walk is sponsored by the Conway Regional Perinatal Bereavement program in honor of infants lost prior to and immediately after being born. Check in will begin at 10 a.m. followed by a remembrance ceremony at 11 a.m.
Andrew Cole, MD, a Conway obstetrician/gynecologist, will speak about the relationship between bereaved parents and their physicians. During the ceremony a balloon will be released as the name of each baby is read, and then the walk will begin.
All members of families that have experienced a pregnancy loss are invited to the walk.
"We want this to be a very meaningful event that will help families remember their loved ones," said Kristi Weider, Coordinator of the Perinatal Bereavement Program.
There is no cost to participate in the walk; however, contributions to benefit the Perinatal Bereavement Program are welcomed and appreciated. Pre-registration with Conway Regional is requested.
