UNITE’S Second Annual
Walk To Remember/Picnic

May 19, 2012

UNITE hosted the 2nd annual Picnic and Walk to Remember on May 19th, 2012 at a local park. Approximately 80 UNITE members, family, and friends from UNITE support groups throughout the Philadelphia-Metropolitan area gathered to share lunch beneath the picnic pavilion, followed by a walk along the park trail. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we enjoyed reuniting with old friends and meeting new friends. As members and friends of UNITE, we are all connected by our love for our children, and when we gather together we feel like one big family. Prior to beginning our Walk to Remember, we read the beautiful poem titled “The Walk”, then we passed out small, heart shaped, tubes of bubbles to all the walkers and we blew loving bubbles skyward in remembrance of our children. We then began our walk together – parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, and friends. We walked to remember, we walked to celebrate, we walked for love.

The Walk

i walked for you

i put your name on my back your soul in my heart and

i walked with others who know each step each thought each breath each bubble sent skyward was for you a walk to remember is what they call it but

i do not need to walk to remember

i remember every minute of every day

i walked to celebrate to thank you to acknowledge you to scream your name to those who forget

i walked for you for love
