WINTHROP TO HOST NINTH ANNUAL WALK TO REMEMBER ON OCTOBER 6 AT EISENHOWER PARK

In recognition of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month, which aims to increase the community’s understanding of the grief associated with the loss of an unborn or newborn child, Winthrop-University Hospital’s Perinatal Bereavement Team will host the Ninth Annual Walk to Remember on Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. at Field 5 of Eisenhower Park in East Meadow.

This annual memorial event, the only walk of its kind on Long Island, enables parents, relatives and friends who have lost a child due to pregnancy complications, stillbirth, early infant loss or fetal abnormalities to walk in remembrance of their loved one. In addition to the walk, the day includes a light breakfast, a candlelight memorial service, and an opportunity for parents to share their memories with others as well as create a personal memory page for inclusion in Winthrop’s Memory Scrap Book. Any individuals who wish to create a personal memory page for inclusion in the Memory Scrap Book are asked to bring it with them the day of the walk.

A donation of $15 per person is requested by September 28, 2012; children under 12 years of age may participate for free. All proceeds benefit Winthrop’s Perinatal Bereavement Team, which is dedicated to providing education, comfort and support to help families cope with the loss of a child.

For additional information about the walk or to make a donation, contact Eileen Magri, RN, MSN, Director of Nursing, Maternal Child Health at Winthrop at (516) 663-2984 or via email at: emagri@winthrop.org.
