Memory Making Events
From time to time, in conjunction with other local support sources, we offer opportunities for parents to gather to work with images and memories of their children and create meaningful ways to share those. Whether parents are making an ornament for the holiday, or creating a spring time collage, they find these events to be healing, helpful, and even enjoyable.
Walk to Remember
This event takes place the first Sunday of each October, and helps kick of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Together we walk in memory of our little ones. Registration for 2018 Walk to Remember will be available in early September.
World Wide Candle Lighting Services
On a Sunday in early December, families around the globe light candles in memory of children of any age who have died. CNYPIBR hosts two services for this purpose, one in Onondaga Hill and one in DeWitt. With communities everywhere, we take time away from the frenzied pressure of the holiday circle the earth with a wave of light in honor and memory. This year’s World Wide Candle Lighting Services will be held on Sunday, December 9, 2018.
