13th Annual “Walk for the Angels” Walk-a-thon

Walk for the Angels walk-a-thon is God’s Tiny Angels Support Group’s annual fundraising event. The purpose of this event is to celebrate Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which is October 15th, and to honor the lives of those babies who have gone before us. We also intend to raise awareness of the struggle that parents and families face when experiencing the loss of a child. We are here to let them know that they are not alone and we have not forgotten!

How does it work?

All participants are encouraged to collect as many pledges as possible prior to the walk. Funds are collected the day of the walk upon checking in. Funds raised from this event help us provide financial assistance for funerals to families in need. The funds also help us continue to provide programs and services throughout the year.

There will be live musical entertainment provided by the band firstandsecond.  There will also be raffle baskets and tickets are 3 for $1.00. God’s Tiny Angels merchandise and remembrance items will be available for purchase. We will provide bottled water and a light snack for each registered walker. Each participant will be given a balloon at the end of the walk to release at closing ceremony.
