CORPORATE TEAMS: Get your company and employees involved by forming a corporate team. It’s a great way to give back and make an impact right here in our community.
REASONS TO ROCK & WALK: When you walk, you give hope and support to families in our community who have lost a baby. The money raised will lift a financial and emotional burden from newly bereaved parents by supporting programs through The TEARS Foundation right in your own community!
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: Online registration through Crowdrise is open now through October 20th, 2017. Walk-up Registration will be available on the morning of the event. Children 12 and under receive free admission. A limited amount of non personalized Rock and Walk t-shirts will be available for purchase at the walk. You may also make your own team shirts.
Thank you for your much-needed support of bereaved families.
