Share of Western Wisconsin, a pregnancy and infant loss group coordinated by HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals, is hosting a walk to honor babies who have died during pregnancy or shortly after birth. October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

On October 15 at 5:30 p.m., families who have suffered a loss – either recently or at any time – are encouraged to gather at the Main Pavilion in Irvine Park near the duck pond. The walk will then proceed to the bridge for a brief memorial service. The walk will then loop through the park back to the duck pond (less than one mile). All family members and friends offering support are welcome.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. For more information, call HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital’s Women and Infant Center at 715-717-7421.
