About this Event

With more than 37 years of service to those who are in need, bringing comfort and understanding to families through every stage of the grief process, Share of Lancaster invites you to join us for the 17th Annual Walk to Remember.

Join us in Lancaster City, Saturday, September 28th — 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m — to honor and to remember your babies as we usher in Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Registration opens at 10AM. For Moms & Dads who have suffered a loss, you do not walk alone.

Registration is free.

Free ticket registration is available during the event. You will be able to submit baby names and/or dates, memorial sayings and photographs to be read during the memorial presentation.

There is only one (1) parking voucher for each registration.

If you have a large party that is arriving in more than one vehicle, the driver of each vehicle must complete the event registration to receive a voucher. Parking vouchers will be issued at time of registration. Parking is limited.

Please list everyone including children in your party. Seating will be prearranged prior to the event so if there is another family or group or family members that you wish to sit next to, this will need to be indicated on the registration. You also may register together. However if more than one parking voucher is needed, please register separately. Seating is arranged to help facilitate the Presentation of Names and Candle lighting.

There is also handicap access. Please identify during registration if handicap seating during the service will be needed. We will arrange seating accordingly.

Our annual event provides an opportunity for families who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss to come together for a time of remembrance. Come with your neighbors, friends and family as we remember those who were gone too soon, and as we walk together with those parents who have experienced pregnancy and/or early infant loss in support and love.

• Memorial service
