Fundraising Walks for Miscarriage


These days there are a lot of different fundraising walks out there. Of course, most people have heard about walks for breast and other cancers. There are also walks to raise money and awareness for hunger, humane societies, children's hospitals and a whole slew of other causes.

What you may not know is that there are also now walks for miscarriage. October 15 is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day and there are many of these walks planned to coincide with that. I'm not sure what happens at other walks but many of the ones supporting miscarriage and infant loss also include other activities such as balloon releases, handing out literature on grief, reading of babies' names or inspirational speakers. Some events are free but request donations. Others have a registration fee.

A fundraising walk can be a good way to honor your loss while also increasing awareness and raising money for charity. You also have a few different options when choosing your charity. You could pick an organization such as the March of Dimes which works to prevent birth defects (a common cause of miscarriages). Or you could donate to a hospital program which provides remembrance items for bereaved parents (some do). Of course already established walks generally also have established charities.

If you've had a miscarriage or lost a baby you may feel an overwhelming desire to reach out to people in a similar situation. A fundraising walk can be a good way to do that as well. Also, fundraising walks tend to be quite popular as walking is a low-impact activity that almost everyone can participate in.

The website for Remembering our Babies has several listings of walks that are planned for the near future. The pregnancy and infant loss support site SHARE also lists some walks. What if, like me, there don't seem to be any walks in your area? eHow.com, a free website which offers advice on a variety of different topics has an article titled “How To Organize a Fundraiser Walk”.
