If volunteering is a passion and you want to be part of an amazing community, put your passion into action! Volunteer for this year’s Legacy Run/Walk on Sunday June 23, 2024. Join us this year and together, we can bring to light the often-silenced topic of infertility, pregnancy and infant loss. OVERVIEW OF PREGNANCY & INFANT LOSS SUPPORT CENTRE The Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Centre is a registered charity based in Calgary, Alberta serving the loss community worldwide. Our mission is to support and connect individuals of all identities, backgrounds or circumstances, who have experienced the trauma around miscarriage, stillbirth, termination for medical reasons (TFMR), neonatal loss, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), or infertility. We acknowledge that the journey through loss towards healing is as complex as it is individual. As such, we offer no-cost pathways to healing including a helpline, peer support, and professional coaching/counselling. For more information, please visit our website at https://pilsc.org/. ROLE DETAILS Held annually, this family-inclusive event raises vital funds to provide no-cost support and community services through the Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Centre (PILSC). The journey through loss is complex and PILSC believes no one should have to walk through it alone. This year we are looking for volunteers to sign up for one of the two shifts on the day of as well as a couple of shifts beforehand.

We recognize the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people of Canada, the impacts of colonization, and the lives, ceremonies, languages, and teachings lost. We work in the spirit of healing and reconciliation to honor those we have lost, those with us, and those yet to come. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgment as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
