Calgary Walk to Remember hopes to give parents and families what they want most: an occasion to remember and to celebrate, openly and without judgment, amongst other families who share the experience and feelings of losing a child. There will be tears, there will be laughter, there will be hope, there will be healing.
Last year, we were able to raise enough funds to donate two ‘Cuddle Cots’ to Calgary Hospitals. This year, we are hoping to be able to donate more cuddle cots so that there is at least one in every Calgary and area hospital.
In order to help us achieve our goal, we are selling ‘Gone But Not Forgotten’ silicone bracelts in memory of our lost angels for $5.00/each. We are also selling raffle tickets for ‘Two Round Trip Flights with WestJet Airlines.’ Raffle tickets for the gifts of flight are $20/each. Tickets will be available for purchase at the walk as well (pending availability), and the draw will be made at the end of the day on September 12th. There are only 300 tickets printed, and ticket sales are underway. We also have ‘Calgary Walk To Remember’ vinyl car decals at the cost of $5.00/each. If you would like to help us reach our fundraising goals by making a donation, or by purchasing any of the above items, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and someone will be in touch to set up pick up/delivery of the items.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for all of your previous support. We hope to be able to help other families who are faced with this same reality, and we do this in memory of all of our lost babies. We look forward to this year’s walk, and spending time with everyone for what is sure to be another beautiful day.
