Friday, October 15, 2021

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is an annual day of remembrance observed on October 15 for pregnancy loss and infant death. Participate in the International Wave of Light by lighting a candle at 7 pm local time to honor all babies gone too soon. Keep your candle lit for at least one hour to create a continuous “wave of light” across all time zones covering the entire globe!

Visit the Footprints in the Field Pregnancy and Infant Loss garden located at Calvery Harvest Fields, 150 Harvest Fields Drive, Boalsburg. This is a beautiful garden being created for families in our community who have experienced this type of loss.
