Hope After Loss, Inc. is a community of those who grieve the loss of a pregnancy or infant. Through peer support, burial assistance, and education/awareness initiatives, we provide the inspiration of hope to those who have experienced the loss of a baby.
Our event, the Footprints on Our Hearts Walk & 5K will be held on Sunday, October 23rd, 2022 at Hubbard Park in Meriden, CT and online.
*Participants can sign up for one or all of these events. In addition, you can order a customized memorial sign with a special baby's name and date that will be on display along the run and walk routes.
We hope you will join us in reaching our walk fundraising goal of $100,000 by collecting pledges of support from your family, friends, or through your own fundraisers. Funds raised from this event will directly support our programs and will allow us to continue to provide our services in the coming year. Please join us in helping families at a time of great need.
After registering for our walk, you will be given your own fundraising webpage that you may personalize with your story. Your family and friends will then be able to pledge their support through your page. You may also start a team if you wish and have your friends join your team. You can become an honored Footprints Friend if you collect at least $500 in pledges.
Your involvement is critical to our success and our ability to continue to help those in need. Thank you again for your help.
