A Walk to Remember at Holy Name Medical Center on Sunday, October 20
Holy Name Medical Center's Bereavement Services has organized a Walk to Remember for families who have experienced the loss of a baby. The walk will be held on Sunday, October 20, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm at Holy Name Medical Center, 718 Teaneck Road, Teaneck, NJ.
The walk is for any family who has experienced the loss of an infant including miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death.

All families, friends, caregivers and professionals whose lives have been touched by the loss of a baby are invited to attend. Light refreshments will follow.
