A Walk in Faith 2017
A Walk in Faith is an annual pregnancy and infant loss memorial walk bringing together grieving families for support and healing. The walk is held every October in Rapid City to commemorate National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day on October 15. Our desire for this event is to bring hope into the lives of those that are walking in this journey of grief by providing an atmosphere of support and fellowship for grieving parents and their family and friends to share together, laugh together and walk in honor of their child's memory.
We've set the date for this year! This year's A Walk in Faith memorial walk has been scheduled for Sunday, October 15, 2016 at 1 pm at Old Storybook Island Shelter off of Canyon Lake Dr. in Rapid City. Registration for the event is $5 and all participants can register online or at check-in at the event. Use the form to below to sign up for this year's walk!
Where does your money go? We're glad you asked! All proceeds from A Walk in Faith go to the Surviving With Grace PAIL Care Packages. These care packages are sent to grieving parents in the Rapid City community to help provide some support and resources during their journey.

This will be the order of events, however, all schedules are subject to change especially with our South Dakota weather!
Pregnancy and Infant Loss
Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness, otherwise referred to as PAIL, has become a big cause for many people today. You may have seen the pink and blue ribbon before...it is a symbol of all those little lives taken too soon. Parents grieving the loss of a child or baby often grieved in silence in the past. Today many men and women are stepping forward to offer support and an atmosphere for parents to grieve openly and freely for their babies.
One such group is Remembering Our Babies...founded by Robyn Bear. People around the U.S. advocated with Bear to have a day for all our babies in heaven. October 15th was established as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
