THE STORY:

I am walking in honor of my son, Justin Patrick. It has been nearly 18 years since I last held him in my arms, but not a day goes by that I don't think about him. I walk for Justin, and to raise money for families who are going through a tragic crisis, who cannot afford a proper burial or cremation for their baby. Please consider donating to my team. 

In loving memory of Justin Patrick Gorman 7/14/1999 - 9/12/1999




The TEARS Foundation is offering an exciting opportunity for the community to become involved with a growing and inspiring event. The TEARS Foundation's Rock & Walk is the signature fundraising event for TEARS. This annual event allows registered walkers to “walk” in honor of a child, or simply in support of others. Each team of walkers may also “rock” in the rocking chairs placed at the event site. Rocking chairs signify the heart of the walk, which is to raise funds for families who have lost a baby and are in need of funeral assistance and emotional support services.

 

The TEARS Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that compassionately assists newly bereaved families with their baby’s funeral expenses and with ongoing emotional support. The TEARS Foundation's Rock & Walk event is a time for our community to gather, to walk and to rock, and lift up the families in our local communities who have been affected by the loss of a child.

 

REGISTRATION: Register by May 11, 2017 for $5 (early bird registration) after that registration will be $10 per person. Children 12 and under receive free admission. You may purchase a personalized Rock & Walk t-shirt by May 11, 2017. A limited amount of non personalized shirts may be available for purchase at the walk. You may also make your own team shirts.

 

Thank you for helping us support bereaved families in Illinois.
