2020 Bridge Lighting








On Thursday, October 15th, 2020, we will recognize International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.  The City of Edmonton will light the bridge for us at dusk to represent and honor all families who have been touched by the loss of a precious baby during pregnancy or any time after birth. We hope by then we will be able to gather together as a caring and compassionate group. If the restrictions for the Global Pandemic have changed by October 15th, 2020, we would plan to meet for this heartfelt ceremony at the Ezio Farone Park, located 11004 97 Avenue. Parking is on the street and there is transit near by. This park overlooks the Edmonton River Valley, with the best view of the bridge. There is a small gazebo that will be our meeting place. Time to be determined but in the past, we have gathered at dusk. As we get closer to the date, we will send out/post the time. We ask you this year to bring your own candle  to light due to the Covid restrictions. PLEASE NOTE: we are allowed to have up to 50 participants at our gathering. If you're planning to attend, please send us a quick email so we can plan the event based on potential numbers. Our email address is heartsbabyloss@shaw.ca.


We look forward to seeing you there.
