Nash Health Care will sponsor its first annual Walk of Remembrance for Steps Never Taken on Sunday at the Rocky Mount Sports Complex.
The event is a part of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month and seeks to honor the children who are lost every year due to miscarriage, stillbirth and newborn death.
The free event will begin at 2 p.m. with a welcoming ceremony followed by a short, symbolic walk for the steps never taken. A balloon release, poetry recitation, naming ceremony and memorial service also are planned. Light refreshments will be served. People who wish to participate are asked to arrive about 1:45 p.m.
While an RSVP is not required, it is suggested and should be sent to Karen Joyner at email@example.com
