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.
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.
“We love to see and hear our babies’ names. Thank you for giving us so many opportunities for that.”

ABOUT THE WALK:
The Virtual Walk will include an online presentation with readings, music, and speakers to honor your baby. During the presentation, each baby is honored by having their name read aloud. Following the presentation, a Virtual Resource Library including additional speakers and musicians will also be available. Attendees are encouraged to take some personal time 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 Friday, August 26th at midnight. No additional registrations will be available after this date.
