Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

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.

Registration

Early registration is available until September 22, 2017 5pm EST. Early registration ensures your child's name will be included on Walk signs, memorial items, and the program. Early registrants may also write a message to their child to be printed in the program, and may purchase optional t-shirts. T-shirts purchased will also feature children's names entered by the early registration deadline. Due to printing deadlines, we cannot allow for late entries. Late registration will be available online, but will NOT include the above benefits. On-site registration will be available at an increased cost of $25 per adult and $15 per child and will not include the above benefits. Any questions about registration are completely understandable, and we welcome them! Let us help by emailing Annie at anniev@heartstringssupport.org.

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. If you have any questions, that's why we're here. anniev@heartstringssupport.org will help you!

Team prizes are currently being finalized, and will be awarded to the First, Second, Third and Fourth place winners!

NOTE: Winners will be based on team totals as of 5pm EST on Friday, October 13, 2017.


“Whole Family Portraits”:
Too often, our babies are unrepresented in family portraits. This is our chance to change that! Bring any memory item you want — photos, ultrasounds, stuffed animals — and hold them tight while professional photographers take your portrait! Those without memory items will be given chalkboards to write their baby’s name and hold with them in the picture. Photos will be emailed directly to you at no charge after the Walk.

NOTE: THIS IS A RAIN-OR-SHINE EVENT! Bring umbrellas and boots!

FAQs

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Annie is so happy to help with any questions you have! Just send her an email at anniev@heartstringssupport.org. Most questions are easy for her to answer, so she'll reply within 24 hours. Some questions are harder and mean she has to ask for help, which could take 48 hours. Thanks for your patience!

What's up with the T-shirts?

Wow, the t-shirts are so cool! If you get signed up during early registration (prior to September 22), you can order a t-shirt (additional charge above registration) and see your child's name on it! Local award-winning designer and owner of Buttermilk Creative, Andy Kurtts, will again be putting together the shirt design. Again, if you have any trouble with ordering shirts (and we're still ahead of the early registration deadline), Annie will be glad to help. Just see the previous question!
