Parents who have Lost Children to Walk at Baker Lake Sunday

Posted by wlpo on September 27, 2016

An Illinois Valley group is holding an event this weekend to help those dealing with the incredible pain of losing a child.

The River Valley chapter of a group called “Compassionate Friends” is holding their third annual Memory Walk and Balloon Release at Baker Lake in Peru on Sunday. Walkers will be able to write a message to their child on the balloon which will be let go in a ceremony after the walk.

Rita Studzinski has been involved with the walk every year. She says the event’s growth is bittersweet.

If you’d like to participate in Sunday’s walk, the cost is $10. In addition to the walk, the group meets the fourth Thursday of every month.

You can find a registration form and more information on the group’s website here.
