Rock & Walk Corporate Sponsorships

The TEARS Foundation offers an exciting opportunity for business leaders to become involved with a growing and inspiring event. Not only will your support help us continue to provide our programs in Washington, supporting this event will give your business recognition across many platforms as we recruit community members to join us in raising funds to support bereaved families.

What is the Rock & Walk?

The Rock & Walk is The TEARS Foundation’s signature annual fundraising event at Cheney Stadium. The heart of our Rock & Walk is to let bereaved families know they are not alone. We strive to build awareness about pregnancy, infant, & child loss by bringing the community together to support these families. As we rock in chairs or walk laps together, we honor the children whose names appear on butterflies lining the path and are reminded that we can find hope. We celebrate their lives by rallying the community around these families and coming together for an uplifting day. We hope you will join us in supporting these families and honoring their children.

About The TEARS Foundation

The TEARS Foundation seeks to compassionately assist newly bereaved families with their child’s funeral expenses and with ongoing emotional support. We have provided thousands of families with financial assistance for the expenses they face in making final arrangements for their lost child from generous donations from the community. It is the only resource of its kind available in Washington and each day more families reach out for our help. We strive to bring awareness to pregnancy, infant, & child loss, as it is an important cause affecting one in four women. Together, we can take a stand to help these families.
