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 September 14, 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 September 4, 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 North Carolina.

Our daughter, Samantha Edlyn, was born on June 22, 2016 at 10:40pm after only being 22 weeks and 3 days gestation. She left us to be with her eternal father in heaven. She has a surviving mother, father and adopted brother. She will always be in our hearts and gives us the calmness to get through each day. She is our wings to keep us flying and we are her flock. We will one be together again.Please help us help others in need during their time of loss.

Thank you,

The Hawkins Family (Hollie, Dave and Blake) and Friends in honor of Samantha Edlyn Hawkins
