The Arizona Chapter TEARS Foundation Rock & Walk
7 Nov 2015
10:00 am-1:00 pm Located at: Centennial Plaza Park
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 the track and to ‚Äúrock‚ÄĚ in rocking chairs.¬†http://www.firstgiving.com/tears/2015arizonarockwalk
The TEARS Foundation is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to compassionately assist bereaved parents with the financial expenses they face in making final arrangements for their precious baby who has died. Many of the founders and volunteers at The TEARS Foundation have experienced the loss of their own baby, and want to reach out in this way to support newly bereaved parents in their time of devastating sorrow.
There are over 1,400 infant deaths in Arizona each year. With your help TEARS can lift a financial burden from these newly bereaved families by providing financial assistance to help pay for their baby‚Äôs funeral expenses. TEARS also offers free ongoing emotional support in the form of support groups, online support and bereavement resources.
