2021 Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day
Saturday October 9, 2021
We plan to hold our 11th Annual Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day in person at WG Lunney Lake Farm Park in Madison, WI (Shelter #3, address: 4330 Libby Road, Madison, WI, USA)!
We are grateful that we can gather in person again, as this event is an opportunity to bring honor to our babies and healing to our hearts. Having the opportunity to gather together and receive support from friends and family in memory of our babies is even more important after this last year, so we have decided to move forward with our annual event in a safe outdoor environment. We hope that it offers families a platform to speak their babies names and also to increase awareness of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness during the month of October.
This year's in person event will also offer a virtual option for those who aren't able to join us in person. All baby names of virtual participants will be read at the event ceremony and we plan to stream the event live on our Facebook page.
Each registration includes individual fundraising pages. Supporting our organization through these funds will ensure future support to families who will sadly walk in our shoes one day. This allows us to continue our current programs that support families who have experienced the death of a baby or have a baby in the NICU.
We encourage all participants to invite their friends and family to the event or to have them join you in their own community by doing a virtual walk with you.
