Walk to Remember: honouring little lost lives
The walk to remember is a day for parents, families and friends to remember and celebrate those babies who are lost through miscarriage, stillbirths, Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), neonatal and infant death.
“You are not alone. Too often, parents grieve and mourn in silence. We started this walk to allow our community to come together. It is a beautiful day when those often unspoken names can be read, remembered, openly talked about and shared,” explains Karen Gilkyson, founder of Tiny Hands of Hope.
Tiny Hands of Hope hosts this annual special event, which began in 2013. It takes place each September in Muskoseepi Park, Grande Prairie. Money raised during this event supports the Parental Bereavement Program at your hospitals. The program empowers your frontline nursing staff to go above and beyond with the care they give a parent(s) who experiences the loss of a baby.
The power of the Parent Bereavement Program is felt every day by your nursing staff and parents in your region. Working alongside Tiny Hands of Hope and the nurses to bring this program to your hospitals is a great honour for the Hospital Foundation. Thank you for your support.
