Memories To Hold - Walk To Remember
Location: Central Elementary School
1000 Main Street
Beech Grove, IN 46107
Franciscan Health will host its 34th annual Walk to Remember on Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019. This citywide event includes hundreds of families from around central Indiana who have lost children through miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death and will come together to remember their babies in a service of music, poetry and reading of the infants' names. Franciscan Health representatives will also be on hand to discuss ways to cope with pregnancy loss and to explain the hospital’s Memories to Hold support group for grieving families.
To become a sponsor or to order an "In Memory" yard sign ($25), visit our Franciscan Health Foundation. To order a yard sign, scroll to the bottom after sponsorship options.
Registration and check-in starts at 9:30 a.m., walk begins at 11 a.m. at Central Elementary School (1000 Main St., Beech Grove), and treks to nearby Sarah T. Bolton Park.
The program lasts about 90 minutes, and participants are encouraged to bring blankets, folding chairs and a picnic lunch.
The event is free. Register online by Oct. 8.
Please note: Online registration for the walk closes Oct. 8, but you may attend and register at the event so that your baby’s name can be read during the ceremony.
