Walk to Remember Planned October 15

October 04, 2017

McCook, Nebraska—Community Hospital of McCook is sponsoring a Walk to Remember on Sunday, October 15 at 3 p.m. at Community Hospital, according to Obstetrics Coordinator, Brandi Renner, R.N.

Walk to Remember is dedicated to babies who have died due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth and infant death, she said. It is not a walk fundraiser, but is for the hearts and minds of families who have suffered a loss. All are invited to gather in memory of the children they have loved and lost.

"Many parents have said that participating in a Walk to Remember is a special way of keeping their baby’s memory alive in their hearts. This does not have to be a recent loss, or a loss at Community Hospital. All are welcome," Renner said.

Participants will meet in Community Hospital’s Healing Garden, 1301 East H Street, McCook, for a short memorial service and dedication. Concluding the service, they will take a brief walk near the hospital and finish with refreshments. 

Walks to Remember are held in many communities each October in conjunction with October’s National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

As a way to deal with their grief, some families may want to donate toward a commemorative bench that will be placed in the Community Hospital Healing Garden in memory of the babies they have lost. This is completely optional, but anyone interested may send a donation to Community Hospital Health Foundation at PO Box 1328, McCook, NE  69001. Call the Foundation at 308-344-7222 for more information about the bench.
