JOIN US FOR THE THIRD ANNUAL PALS WADDLE WALK!

In your neighborhood the weekend of June 26-27, 2021.

The Waddle Walk is Pregnancy After Loss Support’s (PALS) grassroots event to help raise funds to continue to support parents who are trying to conceive, pregnant, and parenting after loss. As we prepare to launch the PALS Pregnancy Tracker App this summer, your support is crucial. The Waddle Walk hopes to raise awareness about the unique experience a loss mom walks during her nine-month journey navigating grief, fear, and hope during a pregnancy that follows a loss.

Courageous parents around the world can participate in raising awareness about the unique experiences and challenges of grieving one life while hoping for another during a pregnancy that follows a loss by completing a three-mile walk in their neighborhood on the same weekend as other parents. We hope you’ll join us.

How does the virtual Waddle Walk Work?

  • You register.

  • Then you choose a spot and time for you and your family to walk three miles (for the three trimesters of pregnancy after loss) on the weekend of Saturday, June 26 – Sunday, June 27, 2021. Be sure to follow your local social distancing guidelines for a virtual walk.

  • Create your fundraising page.

  • Raise funds through your team fundraising page.

  • Send us your Waddle Walk photos and share your photos with #WaddleWalk2021 and #PALSWaddleWalk.

2. Plan your walk.

  • Choose a location for your walk. Because this is a virtual walk, there isn’t one location for the Waddle Walk. The Waddle Walk is a collection of walks put on all over the world by different courageous parents held all on the same weekend. Make sure you follow your local social distancing guidelines when choosing your walk location. Some ideas include parks, the mall, walking trails, the beach, or any other place you’re free to gather.

  • Choose a time for your walk. Waddle Walks should be held on Saturday, June 26 or Sunday, June 27, 2020. The time is up to you!

3. Raise funds for Pregnancy After Loss Support.

  • Create your fundraising page.

  • Choose a fundraising goal for your team. The overall fundraising goal for this event is $40,000: $1,000 for each week of pregnancy after loss.

  • Share your fundraising page on social media and through email, encouraging others to donate to your walk.

  • Give updates to supporters leading up to the event, as well as on the day of the event. Post pictures with the hashtags #WaddleWalk2021 and #PALSWaddleWalk so others can see who all is walking for PALS.

I don’t want to walk. How can I still help?

Great! Thank you for your willingness to support PALS and its services. Here are some ways you can still help.

  • Make a donation at the Waddle Walk campaign page.

  • Share the fundraiser with your friends and family and encourage them to donate.
