About the event

This year, we invite you to help us bring awareness to pregnancy & infant loss.  October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month and October 15th is the National Wave of Light, an event that encourages everyone across various time zones to light a candle at 7pm in remembrance and awareness.  In preparation for this event, the H.E.A.R.T.strings Perinatal Bereavement Office is hosting an awareness event.  We encourage you to choose a day in October and walk, either solo or with a group, in remembrance of your baby or babies.  Here is how it works:

  • Registration is free and open to all.
  • Choose a date for your walk.  You can choose your own location...a park, your neighborhood, etc.
  • Choose your walking may choose to walk solo or create a team of family, friends, or coworkers.
  • Use the items in your registration box to help you as you "let your love glow", which is our theme for this year.  Your box will come with some glow sticks, glow chalk, one event T-shirt (size Large) and ideas for your walk.  Feel free to embellish with glow sticks, battery string lights, and other "light up" items.  You will also receive a candle to light on October 15th.
  • If you would like to set up a memorial page for your baby, let us know in the form below and we can work with you to help you set that up.  All money raised will be for the H.E.A.R.T.strings Legacy Fund and will not only help us provide resources and bereavement support, but will also help you to "Let Your Love Glow" as you become a light for other bereaved parents.
  • Lastly, share your pictures with us.  We can't wait to see them and we can't wait to see you glow!

***For those who live remotely, we please ask that you register for the "Walk to Remember" event (registration is free). You will receive a candle in your box after registering. We ask you please light this candle at 7PM EST and leave your candle lit for one hour to contribute to that National Wave Of Light. 

If you feel comfortable doing so, please share a picture of your lit candle and use the hashtag #babybrookslight.
