The Share walk has come a long way since the very first one in 2002. That year, it was held on the grounds of the Gateway Arch with nearly 300 people in attendance and was called the Share Walk to Remember. This year, the Walk for Remembrance & Hope in St. Charles, Missouri on October 15 was a wonderful success! The event drew over 3,000 men, women and children, who walked the steps the babies they love will never take. We couldn’t have had a more beautiful day! We read the names of close to 600 babies who left this Earth too soon, and a dove release at the end added a calming and uplifting comfort to our families.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to:
*Our platinum sponsor, Express Scripts, who donated $10,000
*Sponsors Long John Silvers, Vios Fertility Institute and Mis-souri Center for Reproductive Medicine
*First Capitol Lions Club for their participation and support in providing the barbecue lunch
*The 185 walk teams who collectively raised over $50,000!
Brittany Jones and Jen Johnson were our top fundraisers. What a wonderful way to give back to Share!
*Gracelynn Halsey and Gracie Maurer, who sang their beautiful hearts out during the memorial service portion of the walk.
*All of our registrants, volunteers and donors. We couldn’t have done it without you!
*Those who held 9 Share walks across the country
