On September 29, 2001, our precious Sarah Elizabeth was "born into the arms of Jesus." The support of family and friends have held us during this last 15+ years. The Tears Foundation has not only supported many families through similar experiences, but they have provided us with a safe place where we can remember Sarah and hear her beautiful name spoken. For that, we are extremely grateful! This event has proven year after year to be an important part of our families story.
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.
