Phoenix WBC 2015 - Walk of Remembrance Gallery
The burn survivor community united in a Walk of Remembrance at Phoenix World Burn Congress 2015 to honor those lost to burn injury and to raise awareness within our communities that burns are a leading cause of accidental death and injury. The walk also offered a time to remember our own losses and personal thoughts related to burn injuries.
Hundreds of burn survivors and their loved ones, firefighters, burn care professionals, and members of the community joined the walk with pipe and drum, fire trucks and other apparatus provided by Indianapolis Fire Department escorting the parade.
Speaking to the crowd at the Indianapolis State House, speakers honored those lost to burn injuries and urged everyone assembled to join together to stop others from suffering the same loss through advocacy and prevention.
