SwedishAmerican Foundation to Co-Sponsor A Walk to Remember, Oct. 1

The SwedishAmerican Foundation and Fitzgerald Funeral Home & Crematory is pleased to co-sponsor A Walk to Remember, a memorial walk to remember children lost through miscarriage, stillbirth, infant and childhood death. The walk will take place on Sunday, October 1 at 1 PM at the YMCA Log Lodge Sinnissippi Bike Path, 200 Y Blvd. This is the 28th year the Foundation and Fitzgerald have partnered together on the event.

A Walk to Remember is for all families who have lost a child either in the recent or distant past, and for caregivers who are involved in the lives and support of these families. A brief memorial service, parent reflection and grief presentation will be followed by a walk to our Brick Memorial along the Sinnissippi path. A dedication will take place at the site.

Refreshments will be served in the Log Lodge at the conclusion of the walk. The walk will take place rain or shine.
