SAN BERNARDINO, CA- “We walk the steps our babies will never take.” That will most likely be the mantra of the participants of the 4th annual Walk to Remember-Inland Empire on Saturday, October 19 at Cal State San Bernardino. The remembrance walk commemorates the lives of families affected by the passing of a baby, through pregnancy lost, stillbirth or infancy loss of any kind. Registration to participate is $20 and check-in begins at 8 a.m. The ceremony will start at 9 a.m. The walk is sponsored by the CSUSB Institute for Child Development and Family Relations. Two Cal State San Bernardino graduates, Amanda Balderrama (B.S. nursing, 2003) and Sarah Miles (B.A. human development, 2006), founded the non-profit organization, Walk to Remember-IE, in January 2010 after experiencing their own tragedies; each lost a son. Last year, more than 600 participants remembered and honored the memories of 104 babies. The walk raised more than $11,000. These funds were able to help with a broad range of projects. The funds raised by the 2012 Walk to Remember also provided supplies for a local peer support group to create keepsakes for the members’ babies and to celebrate their motherhood on the International Bereaved
