The WNYPBN, Inc. provides two Memorial Walks for the Western New York Area: the Southern Tier Walk to Remember and the Buffalo Walk to Remember. These Walks are held in October to help celebrate Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

Throughout the nation, parents, family members, friends and healthcare professionals gather to pay tribute to the approximately 870,000 babies who die each year due to miscarriage, ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, stillbirth or early infant death. For the parents who have experienced perinatal loss, this event is an opportunity to listen to beautiful songs and poems, plant a tree, and come together with other parents to remember their beloved children.
