HEALS to the Pavement

HEALs to the Pavement for Pregnancy & Infant Loss

October 1, 2022 from 10am-2pm

Turner Park at Midtown Crossing

Each October, in recognition of pregnancy and infant loss awareness month, this event provides an opportunity for community members to gather to support one another and to remember their beloved little ones who have gone too soon. Proceeds support the programs and services of HEALing Embrace.

Memorial & Activity Tents Open

We encourage all who are completing their “scrapbook-themed” baby yard signs to, once completed, place their signs along the run/walk route for the community to view and learn more about their beloved children. Special markers and other craft supplies are available in the activity tents.


Vendor Booths and Yard Games Open

Please take time to learn about the many organizations supporting our event.
