  1. Personalize Your Own Walk T-shirt

As always, we strive to best serve families who have suffered the loss of a baby and to best honor the memory of each child. Due to the growth of the Share Walk, we are not able to legibly print all of the baby’s names on the back of the Walk t-shirt. This year we will provide open space on the back of the Walk t-shirt and encourage each family to personalize their shirt with their own baby’s name(s). We look forward to seeing your wonderful creations in memory of your baby!

 

  1. Baby Name Wall

In order to continue our tradition of honoring your babies, this year we will create a large memorial wall printed with all baby names received by the September 1st deadline. The Baby Name Memorial Wall will be displayed at the Walk. Families are encouraged to bring flowers to place at the base of the wall and take photos before/after the ceremony. We hope this memorial will commemorate and honor your baby in an impactful way for your family.

 

  1. Accuracy Check of Baby Names

It is our desire to eliminate potential errors on the Baby Name Memorial Wall. To ensure the accuracy of the Wall, we will post the list of baby names, received by the September 1st deadline, on our website from September 8-12. Please visit the website to check the accuracy of your baby’s/ies name. Complete the contact form on the page or email Rose Carlson (rcarlson@nationalshare.org) to inform us of any corrections. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of spelling if you do not contact us with corrections BY SEPTEMBER 12.

If you DO NOT register by September 1st:

  • Your baby’s name(s) will NOT be printed on the Baby Name Memorial Wall or program

  1. Pinwheels at Memorial Ceremony

This year we will provide pinwheels to each registrant to commemorate their baby/ies during the ceremony. Families are encouraged to raise their pinwheels toward the sky when their baby’s name(s) are read as we honor and remember them together.
