'Remembrance Day' to include walk, dove release | Community Spirit
A gathering to honor families who have lost babies will also support families with a baby in the NICU.
The third annual Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day will be held Saturday in Fitchburg at the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center, 5445 E. Cheryl Pkwy. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon and include speakers, a dove release and memorial walk.
The event is scheduled in October to take place during National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month, organizers said.
Proceeds from the Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day go back to a local non-profit, Mikayla's Grace Inc. The charity supports families with a baby in the NICU and those who experience the death of a baby at Madison-area hospitals by providing NICU care packages, angel memory boxes, and early pregnancy loss care packages.
Registration and memorial areas are open at 9 a.m., a ceremony takes place at 10 a.m. and the walk and dove release begin at 11:30 a.m., according to the group. Tickets are $15 at the door.
