Please join us for the 28th Annual Walk to Remember on Sunday, October 2, 2016. Please note several changes from previous years -- We will meet at 12:00 pm at the main entrance to Good Samaritan Hospital, 255 Lafayette Avenue, Suffern, NY. Participants will be able to sign their babies’ names into the book for the ceremony, buy t-shirts, work on a craft with children who are attending, sign the banner and write their babies’ names on ornaments for the trees in the walkway. The brief ceremony will begin at 12:45 pm, and will conclude with the reading of the babies’ names. We will then walk together, and return to the front of the hospital.
Join us in October for our 6th Annual Evening to Remember charity event. An Evening to Remember is a fun night out where we remember and celebrate the life of all babies taken from us too soon. There will be a chance auction for a variety of exciting prizes with all proceeds benefiting The Forget Me Not Foundation.

Hackensack University Medical Center will continue its tradition of “walking to remember the steps you’ll never take” during the annual Walk to Remember, a special service to honor the memories of babies who died as a result of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, genetic disorders, stillbirth, or newborn death. A memorial service preceding the walk will consist of songs and readings by family and staff members in attendance, as well as a banner display of decorated fabric squares created in memory of loved ones.
