Empty Stroller Awareness Walk

Saturday, October 15, 2022

Register for FREE to attend the 2nd Annual Empty Stroller Awareness Walk!

5:30pm Check-in
6pm Short Welcome and Walk
7pm Short Program and Candlelight Vigil

Bereaved parents and supporters are invited to come together to help raise awareness about pregnancy and infant loss. We will meet at the State Street Steps and walk together around the Wisconsin State Capitol.


We encourage you to walk with an empty stroller as a powerful image of the emptiness families are left with after a baby dies. Additional strollers are available to rent for free, upon request, for those who need one. Bereaved parents may also choose to put their baby's memorial bears, photos, or other special items in their strollers as a way to honor their baby's memory.

This event is co-hosted by the Alana Rose Foundation and Healing Our Hearts.

This event is also a satellite event for the Big PUSH to end preventable stillbirth, which will take place in Washington D.C. on Saturday, October 15th.  Learn more at https://www.pushpregnancy.org/bigpush!
