Planning a Share Walk in your area…

The Share Walk for Remembrance & Hope has touched hearts nationwide.  It is a meaningful event for friends, families, and caregivers that allows for a place to remember and honour our precious babies that have died, and also to gather support and hope from each other. 

Many parents strive to remember their babies and to bring awareness to others of the impact losing a child has on their lives.  For groups and individuals, planning a walk takes preparation and time.  It is important to acquire a Walk Packet and Walk Commitment from National Share so you can use Walk logos and shared Walk information from the National Walk Committee.  The National Share Office will compile a list of all scheduled Walks that will be printed on the Share website and in the Sharing Newsletter.  Visit our upcoming events page in the summer and fall to find more information about a Share Walk in your area. 

Share Walk Disclaimer:

Those hosting a Share Walk for Remembrance & Hope must complete and return a commitment form to National Share.  This allows the host to be affiliated oxa max with the Share network and use Share logos. 

If you are hosting an event or fundraising for Share Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support, Inc., including the Share Walk, proceeds are to be directed to National Share and cannot be used for non-profit use outside of the Share network.  A commitment form must be completed and returned to National Share to host a

Share Walk or use Share logos.
