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 is also registered to “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.
***Last year was our first fundraiser held in honor of Riley Elizabeth Westberg, who was born still on August 3, 2015. Our goal for the fundraiser was set at $2,000 and we far exceeded our goal and raised $4,000! Please help us match our last years donations in the quest to help other families, who are faced with the unthinkable! With your thoughtful donation, it can help "lessen" the pain of loosing their child, any amount helps and it helps us keep Riley's memory alive!
