Walk the paths of St. James Farm Forest Preserve with us, surrounded by butterflies- each with the name of a baby being walked in honor of or that was helped by TEARS. Your registration also includes a personalized, handmade butterfly with your baby's name on it to take home with you, one per team.
The Rock & Walk is The TEARS Foundation's signature event where participants register to walk and to "rock" in rocking chairs placed at the event. The rocking chairs signify the reason we are here- to support families through the loss of a baby. This inspiring event brings hope and healing as we walk in honor of the children who have gone too soon and as we walk to support other families who will face this devastating loss in the future. Walk in honor of a child or simply walk in support of others in your community. Who will you walk for?
The more money you raise, the more families will be directly helped in your community. Although the purpose of raising donations is truly to support newly bereaved families, we also want to reward you with some wonderful prize incentives for your efforts! You could be entered into a Holland America Cruise for 2 drawing, personalized teddy bear, and much more! Check out the incentives and additional fundraising ideas at www.thetearsfoundation.org on the Rock & Walk tab.
