The H.E.A.R.T.strings Perinatal Bereavement & Perinatal Palliative Care program of Northside Hospital invites you, your family and friends to join us for this year’s Atlanta Walk to Remember, which will be held virtually on Friday, October 15th at 6:30 p.m. We understand that this announcement of a second virtual event may be disappointing, please know that we could not be more excited about our vision for this event.  This year’s virtual program will include a short, simple candle lighting ceremony and reading of names.  We have chosen October 15th since it is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day.   Each person who registers before the deadline will receive a candle to light.  The program will conclude with each registrant lighting a candle at 7pm as part of the global “Wave of Light”.  By participating in lighting your candle, we will join others around the globe in the wave of light in awareness of pregnancy & infant loss.  The virtual nature of this will offer you a permanent remembrance for our community, which you may revisit as you need to.  We also, once again, invite you to gather in small groups in your neighborhoods or communities and walk in remembrance and awareness.  We will have a special T-shirt to commemorate this year’s event, as well as visors.  Check our website for more information about registration and T-shirt ordering.Additional information will be available via the following methods:
