(Breese, IL) – HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese’s local Share Group invites the community to attend the Share Walk for Remembrance and Hope on Saturday, October 13. Check-in will start at 9 a.m. at Schoendienst Park in Germantown. The memorial service, including a balloon release and leisure walk, will follow at 10 a.m.

The Share Walk for Remembrance and Hope provides families who have experienced the tragic death of a baby or infant an opportunity to openly acknowledge and remember their babies amongst family, friends and the bereavement community. 

All proceeds raised at this event go toward the purchase of an Angel of Hope statue and base. The memorial statue will contain a water feature allowing children to send pennies to heaven.  Symbolizing hope, reflection and healing, the Angel of Hope statue will be placed in the Memorial Garden on St. Joseph’s Hospital grounds. 

Attendees may register at the event. Adult registration of $20 includes participation in the memorial and balloon release. Donations can be sent to St. Joseph’s Auxiliary/Share Program, PO Box 99, Breese, IL 62230.
