Together we walk the steps our precious babies never took

We are very pleased that the Townsville 2021 Walk to Remember can take place.  We ask you to join us in walking the steps our precious babies never got to take.  

Registration will open at 7.30am with the service to commence at 8.00am.  

This special event, part of International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Month,  is a day to come together to remember our babies and find connection with other bereaved parents. The event will include a memorial service during which you will be invited to come forward & say your baby’s or babies name/s.   If you would like someone to read out your baby's name (as has previously been the practice in Townsville) please email [email protected]

This year, as was the case last year, we will have a mass display of pinwheels rather than releasing live butterflies. Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.

The service will be followed by a ceremonial Walk to ‘take the steps our babies could not’, generally a 10-15 minute short walk.   

For personalised t-shirts and singlets, we are partnering with A Cut Above Byron who will sell shirts directly and make a donation per garment to Sands. Orders need to be received as soon as possible to allow for postage delays.  Tanja from A Cut Above Byron has asked you allow a full three weeks to ensure delivery.   

This event is free, but bookings are essential.
