Families in the big bend area were at st. Paul's united methodist church this evening celebrating the lives of babies lost during the 12th annual 'Walk To Remember.'
The event is held each year to observe National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
Around 200 people each year and all families and their friends in our community are welcome to participate. In 2012, there were 1,530 fetal deaths and 1,285 infant deaths in Florida.
Leon County had 29 fetal deaths and 28 infant deaths that year.
Both fetal and infant deaths increased in 2012.
