The TEARS Foundation has been a huge support for us. The monthly support meetings, remembrance events, selfless staff/volunteers, and opportunity to create a video about Max are priceless.
Join us in remmbering Max and other babies that have passed away. It's more remembrance than walk - so don't worry about training. But it's an opportunity to see Max on the big screen and see his butterfly along the field.
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.
