A Red Nose Walk to Remember will be held this Sunday to mark Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in Bundaberg.
The community is invited to walk from Nielson Park, Fred Courtice Ave, Bargara to honour the little lives lost each year.
In Australia, an estimated one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage each year, and approximately 3000 babies die from causes such as stillbirth and SIDS.
“This October, we acknowledge the thousands of Australian families who have
experienced the loss of a pregnancy or a baby,” Keren Ludski, CEO, Red Nose Australia said.
“Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month gives families the chance to come together to honour their children and connect with other families whom have experienced similar grief.
“Our Walk to Remember events are an opportunity for families to acknowledge the little lives lost too soon.”
Keren said each registered family received a pinwheel which represented the wheel of life.
“Despite no longer having their babies physically with them, these babies will always be part of the family’s lives – always present in their hearts and forever connected,” Keren said.
Red Nose Walk to Remember in partnership with T.G's Legacy 2022
When: Sunday 23 October 3 pm
