Baby Loss Awareness Week – Our Miscarriage Association Memory Walk
In October, we remember all the tiny lives lost to miscarriage, ectopic and molar pregnancy through our new Memory Walk fundraising event.
Taking place on the last Sunday of Baby Loss Awareness Week – we’ll be encouraging people to walk 4 miles at 4pm, reflecting the 1 in 4 pregnancies that is estimated to end in miscarriage, while raising funds to help people through the heartbreak of pregnancy loss.
We are hoping that supporters all over the UK will join us and hundreds of other people as they set off on their own local memory walks to remember those little lives lost, raise awareness of the issues surrounding baby loss, and to signpost people to our services. They might also want to light a candle after the walk to join in with the national Wave of Light at 7pm that evening.
If you are interested in joining us for this virtual event, please watch this space for further information.
Thank you for your support.
The Miscarriage Association’s Stars of remembrance
We have a special section on our website which provides a memorial space for babies lost in pregnancy – a place to mark the brief lives of those babies who died before they were born. We have created a new sky for our Memory Walk participants which you can find here: https://www.miscarriageassociation.org.uk/MemoryWalkStars
You can write a message in memory of your baby or simply provide us with a name and date and we will place a new star in the sky, linked to your message.
Please e-mail your message to Emma at email@example.com with the subject “Memory Walk Stars of Remembrance”. Please keep your message to less than 450 characters or about 90 words. We’ll e-mail to let you know when your message has been added (it may take a few days).
Once again, many thanks for your support – you’re making a real difference to people at what can be a really tough time. Every penny you can add to the overall total will help us to continue to be there to help people through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or molar pregnancy, and we really do appreciate your support.
We’ll be here to support you every step of the way.
