The NILMDTS Remembrance Walk, “Our Journey Together” is for parents, family members, and friends to come together to remember a precious baby who has died due to miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, neonatal or any type of pregnancy or infant loss.

Join us for the 2020 NILMDTS Virtual Walk taking place on Saturday, October 3, 2020.  This year’s Virtual Walk is open to everyone. Because we are unable to gather at our typical Walks in Minnesota, Colorado, and Virginia, we encourage those who participate in these Walks to join us for our Virtual Walk.
The NILMDTS Virtual Walk is an opportunity to bring honor to our babies and healing to our hearts. The Virtual Walk also ensures future support to families who will sadly walk in our shoes one day.
The Virtual Walk includes an online presentation with readings, music, and speakers to honor your baby.  During the presentation, each baby is honored by having his or her name read aloud.  Following the presentation, we encourage all participants to journey with their friends and family for a one mile reflective walk in their own community. Together, we will create the same sense of community and support found at our in person walks.


Online registration is available until Tuesday, September 8th at midnight.
     $35.00 Adult –  includes a Walk T-shirt and 1 Program Book per order.
     $30.00 Senior – includes a Walk T-shirt and 1 Program Book per order.
     $30.00 Additional Adult – includes a Walk T-shirt.
     $15.00 Child – includes a Walk T-shirt.


We have simplified the registration process by creating an “Additional Adult Registration” option. Once you have completed your main Adult registration, you can add the Additional Adult Registration. This option allows you to add this person to your team, include his or her main contact information, and save $5 on the registration. Please note that you cannot add baby names to this type of registration.


All registered baby names will be listed on the back of the t-shirt, in the program book, and read during the presentation if registered before online registration closes on Tuesday, September 8th at midnight. No additional baby names can be added after online registration closes.

“This walk is very important to our family because we are surrounded by other families who understand the loss of a child and how much it means to us when our babies are remembered. We walk not only for our babies but for all babies.” ~Jaymee, NILMDTS Walk Participant


The presentation will be available online Saturday, October 3, 2020, at 9:00 am Mountain Time and shared on our YouTube Channel. The direct video link will be shared the morning of the event or you can use the link to our channel here.


Butterflies are NOT available for purchase for the virtual event, but participants can fundraise to receive a butterfly growing kit. See all personalized gifts and fundraising dates here. Watch the transformation from caterpillars to chrysalides, to beautiful Painted Lady butterflies that you can release on October 3rd following the virtual presentation.


Each registration includes one t-shirt. Additional t-shirts can be ordered during registration or after registration here until 9/8/20.
