LOCATION:  810 River Ave Pittsburgh, PA 15212
TIME: 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
REGISTRATION OPENS: July 21, 2019

Spend a special day walking along the North Shore Trail in memory and celebration of the infants who left us too soon. Join us as we play fun games, eat good food, and spend time with great people who come together to reach a common goal, to raise awareness of and eliminate infant sleep-related deaths.

Anyone who has experienced infant loss, miscarriage, or stillbirth is welcome to join us in the day’s activities. We encourage everyone to gather friends and family members to join us in remembrance of these babies and help us to raise awareness of our cause.

All money raised during this event supports our Cribs for Kids® program to help us continue our life-saving mission of helping every baby sleep safer. Every $50 raised provides a safe sleeping environment for a family in need.

    The Remembrance Tent

    The remembrance tent is a designated area of the stroll that includes our remembrance slide show.

    The boards are approximately 14×22 inches in size. You are encouraged to bring pictures, and anything else you would like to use to decorate your board. Markers, glue sticks, stickers, and other materials are provided for you to decorate your board the morning of the stroll.

    At the end of the day, you are welcome to take the board home with you. Just remember, to bring it back next year to display in the tent.

    If you would like to decorate your board ahead of time and would like to pick up the board from the Cribs for Kids office in Hazelwood, please contact Andrea Wilson.
