A Walk to Remember October 12
Baptist Health Lexington will sponsor “A Walk to Remember” Oct. 12 to observe National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.
The walk, to be held at 2 p.m. at the Lexington Cemetery at 833 West Main Street, is dedicated to the approximately 935,000 babies who die each year through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, and newborn death. The event also symbolically joins all the people nationwide who are working to raise awareness of perinatal grief and ensure that sensitive care is given to parents who experience the death of a baby.
Participants are asked to arrive at 1:30 p.m. for registration. Parking will be around Section C and the Henry Clay Memorial. Activities will include a welcoming address, a walk of approximately one mile, reading of poetry, recognition of infants and an opportunity for parents to share. The walk will be held rain or shine.
Those who plan to participate are asked to RSVP at 859-260-6904 or e-mail Debbie Mueller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
