Walk to Remember to support pregnancy and infant loss

Walk to Remember
Hosted by Red Nose Australia, the Walk to Remember event will bring together families to walk the steps their precious babies never had the chance to take.

The community is invited to participate in a Walk to Remember event in October to support local families during Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

Hosted by Red Nose Australia, the event will bring together families to walk the steps their precious babies never had the chance to take.

This includes families who have lost babies to miscarriage, stillbirth and infant death.

Many local families are expected to attend the event, which includes a 15 minute walk, a short remembrance service and a picnic.

Red Nose Australia Co-CEO Jackie Mead said every year, around 110,000 Australians had a miscarriage.

A further 2200 endure the pain of stillbirth and 600 lose their baby in the first 28 days after birth.

She said October was a time for Australia to break the silence and acknowledge the heartbreak happening too often right now

“Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month is all about providing recognition for the hundreds of thousands of Australians who suffer in silence every year when they are experiencing often what is the worst moment of their life,” Ms Mead said.

“Red Nose events around Australia and online throughout October are a place for
Australians to come together to acknowledge their babies and to help break the stigma that continues to exist around pregnancy and infant loss.”

The Bundaberg Walk to Remember event will be held on Sunday, 17 October at Baldwin Swamp Environmental Park from 9am to 11am.

The event is free, but bookings are essential. You can book here.
