Genoa Park, Columbus, OH

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 at the Ohio Walk either in person at Genoa Park or watch the presentation online from the comfort of your home. The NILMDTS Remembrance Walk is an opportunity to bring honor to our babies and healing to our hearts. The Walk also ensures future support to families who will sadly walk in our shoes one day.

“To just be with other families who are walking through the grief journey gave me a sense of normalcy in my now upside down world..”
~ NILMDTS Ohio Walk Participant

“This was my first time attending something like this. I had just lost my baby 2 months earlier and the date of the event was supposed to be my baby shower. So it was very special to me. I loved the symbolism of the butterfly. The volunteers were so kind. The activities were fun and it was nice to see people smiling. It really made me feel like I was not alone and that things will get easier. I will definitely attend again, and I would recommend this event to others.”
