A note from Amy!
September 27, 2016
Every year, hundreds of local families come together to share with each other their journeys, their babies and their hopes. It is a time when we can openly grieve and remember, and through that togetherness, we grow in the hope that carries us forward.The Walk for Remembrance & Hope is Heartstrings’ most important pregnancy and infant loss outreach event to support bereaved families, and it also ﬁnancially ensures the continuation of our grief support programs for families in need.
Team fundraising! So many are touched by the babies we are honoring. Invite your friends and family to help honor your baby/babies through contributing to a Memorial/Team fundraising page. We have worked to make team fundraising easier by utilizing CrowdRise so that our families may create their own webpage. You will be prompted to create a fundraising page after completing your registration. Step-by-step directions can be found here.
