It is with great pleasure that the Missing Alexis Foundation announces the 16TH ANNUAL NORTHERN KENTUCKY WALK TO REMEMBER! This year's Walk will be held on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2023 at the Boone County Arboretum at Central Park in Union, Kentucky. This is a 1 mile memorial walk for anyone whose life has been touched by the loss of a baby through miscarriage, molar or ectopic pregnancy, prematurity, stillbirth, S.I.D.S. or any other form of antenatal or neonatal death. The Walk is designed to honor and remember those babies taken from their families far too soon. The Walk is free to all participants, but donations are welcome and encouraged to the Missing Alexis Foundation.
