Our virtual event Walk Your Way is back for 2021!

During the month of October, dedicate every step in honour of your own baby or a friend’s baby and help raise important funds in support of bereaved families. Team up with your family and friends to join you in your local area and help make a greater impact. You can log or sync your steps and distance on your page to show your efforts and achievements throughout the month.

With social distancing now intertwined in our lives, we want to ensure parents, families and friends around Australia can still feel connected with support, have an opportunity to acknowledge the beautiful babies who live within their hearts and do some really special things to help make a difference this October - Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month. 

You might like to set yourself a goal. For example:

  • 3.5km per day/week, in honour of the babies lost through miscarriage every 3.5 minutes
  • 6000 steps per day OR 6km per week - for the 6 babies who are stillborn every day
  • 30km - for the 3 babies who die each day after birth and before their 1st birthday
  • 1km - for each week you were pregnant with your baby

However, you choose to take part, we encourage you to help raise funds for and awareness of Bears Of Hope through this month. Your efforts will enable us to continue providing counselling sessions, wellbeing groups, online peer support groups, grief workshops, and support weekends as well as our bears of hope and support packages provided to families. 

Don't forget to keep up to date with any restrictions that are relevant to your local community.
