Together we walk the steps our precious babies never took.
Our Walks to Remember are special annual events around Australia that bring bereaved parents together with their families and friends to commemorate their babies who’ve died, to share their experiences openly and to support each other.
Each of our local events has its own identity and history and is led by a group of Sands volunteer parent supporters. The walks attract so many local families each year and are just one of the ways Sands uses its model of peer support to companion parents on such a difficult road.
This is a day to come together to remember our babies and find connection with other bereaved parents. The event will include a memorial service during which you will be invited to come forward & say your baby’s or babies name/s. The service will be followed by a ceremonial Walk to ‘take the steps our babies could not’, generally a 10-15 minute short walk.
This year we will be introducing a new tradition, a massed display of pinwheels rather than releasing live butterflies. Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.
For personalised t-shirts and singlets, we are partnering with A Cut Above Byron who will sell shirts directly and make a donation per garment to Sands. Orders need to be received by 30 September at the latest to allow for postage time. Visit: https://www.acutabovebyron.com.au/
