A Walk to Remember
Commemorative Event Registration
This Spring, PAIL Network invites you, your family, and friends to join us for a beautiful commemorative event in honour of our babies called “A Walk to Remember”.
Local PAIL Network Volunteers will be hosting events in several locations across Ontario on Sunday June 4th, 2023 from 10 am – 12:30 pm. Families will be invited to gather at a meeting spot from which the walk will begin and end. The 3-5 km walk will start at 10:30 am and will take approximately one hour. Following the walk, everyone is welcomed to join with others for a snack provided by PAIL Network.
Details of the walk location, including the address and meet up spots will be shared with registrants by email closer to the date. On the day of the event, registrants will meet a PAIL Network Volunteer on site to pick up their commemorative Walk to Remember flag (one per household) and personalized stickers for everyone to write the names of the babies you are walking in honour of. (If there is not a Walk in your community, or you would prefer to walk alone or with just close family and friends, there will an option to select “No location. I am walking in my own community”).
Walk to Remember locations:
Sault Ste Marie
Toronto (Woodbine Beach)
A social media post about the event will be made to our private Facebook Group at the time of the walk. This Walk to Remember thread will be a place for you to share photos as you are walking and connect with the several hundred other families who will be walking in this special event.
This private event will not facilitated by trained peer support volunteers and is not a substitute for group support. Families will be welcomed to share their grief with others on the walk if they would like but will not be expected or asked to share their story in a public forum.
