Bereaved parents and supporters are invited to come together to help raise awareness about pregnancy and infant loss. We will meet at the State Street Steps walk together around the Wisconsin State Capitol. We encourage you to walk with an empty stroller as a powerful image of the emptiness families are left with after a baby dies. Additional strollers are available to rent for free, upon request, for those who need one. Bereaved parents may also choose to put their baby's memorial bears, photos, or other special items in their strollers as a way to honor their baby's memory. A short program and candlelight vigil in honor of the International Wave of Light will follow the walk at 7 pm. (Battery-operated candles will be provided.) EVENT SCHEDULE Check-in on State Street Steps at 5:30 pm Walk around the Capitol begins at 6:00 pm International Wave of Light candlelight vigil at 7 pm This is a FREE event but we kindly ask you to register. Can't participate but want to help support families who experience pregnancy and infant loss? Donate instead! This event is co-hosted by the Alana Rose Foundation and Healing Our Hearts.
