BENEFITING: TEARS FOUNDATION

EVENT: Massachusetts Rock & Walk

EVENT DATE: Jun 25, 2017

Emily Coelho

THE STORY:

Our sweet baby girl, Lena Beth, was stillborn at 23 weeks gestation on January 10th, 2016 after we found out she no longer had a heartbeat at a routine appointment.  We were so excited for her to join our family in May and were obviously devastated by her loss.  We found the TEARS Foundation shortly after and are forever grateful for the support and guidance they have provided.  We have learned that the grieving process is ongoing and comes in waves, and our TEARS family has been there every step of the way.  We walk to honor Lena Beth and all the other babies gone too soon.  We walk to share community awareness so that miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss is no longer a taboo subject in our society.  We walk so that no other parents feel alone like we did the first month until we found TEARS.  Please help us help other families who have to deal with this type of loss every single day.

 

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.

Thank you for helping us support bereaved families in Massachusetts.

REGISTRATION: Registration is $10, children 12 and under receive free admission. You may purchase a personalized Rock & Walk t-shirt by May 15, 2017. A limited amount of non personalized shirts may be available for purchase at the walk. You may also make your own team shirts.
