Brief Description of Event:  In 1988, former President Ronald Reagan declared the month of October  as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. To commemorate  this declaration, M.E.N.D. -Houston, hosts what is known as a "Walk to  Remember". Unlike the name may imply, The Walk is not a fundraiser,  nor a "walk-a-thon". Instead, it is a beautiful ceremony to remember  our babies who have died. The Walk to Remember ceremony includes a  speaker, beautiful music, a balloon release and time for each family  to remember their baby. You must register to attend and to ensure that you will get a  personalized ornament for your baby.   For more information go to:

Event Contact Phone: 5123470081

Brief Description of Event: Deanna will be organizing the annual candlelighting for the Oct. 15 Wave of Light as she has for many years, down at the pond behind the Long Center. (This area is called Butler Park and is near the lighted fountains, at the base of the hill.)

This year we will have a lovely couple also helping run the candlelighting — Jeff and Irma.

We will light our candles between 7 and 8 p.m.  Parking is easiest along Riverside or in the lot off Dawson Road. Most of the runners are leaving at this hour, so you can usually find a spot if you see someone heading to their car. You should be able to spot us by our candles and signs.

I will have candles for everyone, and many parents will bring theirs too.

Feel free to share this event with your list of families in Austin.

Event Contact Phone: 808-268-8402

Brief Description of Event: This is a candlelighting ceremony and luminary-lit meditative walk on a bluff overlooking the scenic St.Croix River Valley and historic Downtown Hudson. Come share a quiet time of lighting candles and remembering our babies lost during or shortly after pregnancy due to miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, SIDS, or other causes. Miscarriage and pregnancy loss are often misunderstood by the general public leaving survivors often feeling alone or ashamed of their grief. Recalling and retelling a loss can be helpful in the grieving process and we welcome those who wish to talk of their loss to do so. We also embrace those who wish to be silent. If your loss was recent or decades ago, you are welcomed. Bring friends and families experiencing child loss. We’ll have tables for photos and small mementos and we provide candles.
