The Rock & Walk

Online registration has closed. You may still register at the walk. Doors open at 9:15am. You may still give donations to support a team. 

What is the Rock & Walk? The heart of the walk is to let bereaved families know they are not alone, raise funds to support these families and build community awareness about pregnancy and infant loss. Individuals form teams and collect pledges to walk on the track at Cheney Stadium and to “rock” in rocking chairs.

Inspire HOPE:  Families who have lost a child are invited to walk the first lap at the event allowing them to honor their child. As  the community joins, families are reminded that while we walk together, we can find hope.

HONOR a child: “Rock” in rocking chairs which are placed at the event and symbolize why we are there - supporting families who have lost a baby. “Walk” in honor of a child around a path lined with hand crafted memorial butterflies, each with a name of a child loved and honored.

CELEBRATE a life:  Come out to a fun, family event to  enjoy great food, beautiful music, and experience an uplifting butterfly release.

Get started

REGISTER: Registration is $10. Children 12 & under receive free admittance. Non-personalized shirts will be available for purchase at the event, while supplies last. If you would like your baby's picture included in the slideshow on the big screen at Cheney Stadium, please send two pictures to admin@thetearsfoundation.org with your baby's name and birth/death date by May 31st, 2013.
