On this day, join Sands Queensland at New Farm Park in commemorating and honouring the babies that were gone too soon as a result of miscarriage, stillbirth, newborn death, and other pregnancy losses. There will be a memorial service, butterfly release, and walk around the park representing the steps our babies didn't get a chance to take.
On this day, join Sands Queensland in recognising issues families encounter when a baby passes away as well as raising knowledge and understanding of these issues in the community.
On this day, join Sands Queensland in raising the much needed funds by taking part in fundraising activities. So pack your picnic blanket, your picnic lunch and enjoy the great outdoors.
Participants must register for $5 and butterflies can be purchased for $15 before 1 September. You can register and purchase butterflies online, print the Brisbane Registration Form, and post it to PO Box 934, New Farm 4005, or do it on the day.

Sands Queensland helps, supports, educates and encourages parents and families who have experienced the death of a baby. Established in the 1980s, Sands Queensland has since been assisting bereaved parents providing them with the support and information they require.
