Miles in Memory walks are organised by supporters across the country and take place every year, usually in spring or summer but they can be held all year round! We are currently only encouraging supporters to organise their own Miles in Memory walk if they can do so in line with current Government advice around social distancing.
About Miles in Memory
Getting involved with Miles in Memory is simple and rewarding. It is a wonderful opportunity to get friends, family and colleagues together to share the walk, remember a loved one and raise money for The Lullaby Trust.
From walks that get the whole community involved in awareness and fundraising activities, to walks that focus on the memories of a loved one, all are of equal significance to The Lullaby Trust, and we are here to support you every step of the way!
Over the years hundreds of supporters have held walks in memory of their babies, some of whom have shared their stories below:
‘Each year we hold a Mile in Memory event to remember our beautiful little girl. It’s an emotional day with tears, smiles and laughter, a day full of love’ Read Jessica’s story here
‘I feel very blessed to have been able to do this walk in my son’s memory and to raise money for The Lullaby Trust at the same time. I hope our money can help support more families and to find out more about SIDS, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy’ Read Catriona’s story here
‘Because of losing William I became involved with The Lullaby Trust as an active befriender for many years. Now of course I do the Southsea Westie Walk. It is my way of having fun and raising funds to ensure that befriending is available to any family member who has been affected by this tragic event.‘ Read Leanne’s story here
