BENEFITING: TEARS FOUNDATION

EVENT: Washington Rock & Walk

EVENT DATE: Jun 10, 2017

THE 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.

 

REGISTRATION: Register by May 10, 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 May 3, 2017. A limited amount of non personalized shirts may be available for purchase at the walk. You may also make your own team shirts.

Each team may include up to two pictures of their baby to be included on the jumbotron. Submit pictures to Lauren at wachapter@thetearsfoundation.org by June 1, 2017.

 

Thank you for helping us support bereaved families in Washington.
