[ARCHIVED] Remembrance Baby Walk

A baby walk will be hosted by Bluff City Cemetery, St. Joseph Provena Hospital and Fox Valley Volunteer Hospice at Bluff City Cemetery, 945 Bluff City Blvd., Elgin on Saturday, May 3 at 9:00 a.m. The baby walk was started 11 years ago to help families with closure after experiencing the loss of a child.

The baby walk is a half-mile walk to the baby land section of the cemetery. Mementos are placed in a small casket as part of the ceremony and a Chaplain says a prayer. A tree is planted in the area to commemorate the walk.

For more information contact Shelia Krippner from St. Joseph Provena Hospital at 847-844-3751.
