Join us for A Walk to Remember in Littleton, Colorado
On October 10, 2009, the staff and attorneys at our law firm will walk with A Walk to Remember, an annual Colorado walk for families who have lost children. The Bachus & Schanker, LLC Cares Foundation invites you to warm your heart and hands at the walk's warming tent, where you can find hot coffee and cider.
In 2008, a group of bereaved parents came together to ensure that the vision set forth by the original founders of A Walk to Remember would live on. They were brought together by grief and a determination to ensure that not only a Remembrance Walk would happen to remember our children, but also that bereaved parents in Colorado would have the resources needed to get through such a difficult time.
A Walk to Remember's mission is to help those that are faced with walking a path of loss due to pregnancy loss, neonatal loss, stillbirth, SIDS, etc. and to ensure that they are not alone by providing them with the support tools and resources needed for their journey.
Colorado Parent Bereavement Support for Families
The non-profit A Walk to Remember Foundation, which is based in Littleton, Colorado, helps families who grieve the loss of a child due to pregnancy loss, stillbirth, neonatal loss and SIDS. It provides support resources to those who need them, including bereavement care packages.
The annual Walk to Remember serves as both a fundraiser and support network for parents who have lost children to come together in remembrance of their child.
This year, the Bachus & Schanker, LLC Cares Foundation will participate in the walk and sponsor audio equipment for it.
