I'm apart of this event to honor my beautiful Angel Kierra. She was born early at 24 weeks gestation after a nightmare of being medevaced to Anchorage without knowing how the weekend was going to end. On May 30th, 2016 the doctors at Providence had to do an emergency C-section, Kierra was just too perfect and beautiful but wasn't ready for this world. The TEARS Foundation is something I wasn't aware of at this hard time, but am so glad I found them so I can help and meet others that end up in this painful situation.
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 August 16, 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 August 6, 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 Alaska.
