TEARS Walk and Rock event scheduled for April 10

February 11, 2010

The Midwest chapter of the TEARS Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to lift the financial and emotional burden of families who have lost a baby, will present the area’s first Walk and Rock event Saturday, April 10, at Lansing High School, 220 Lion Lane, Lansing. Teams will collect pledges to be donated to the TEARS Foundation and walk around the track in honor of a lost baby.

Each team will also be designated a certain time to rock in a rocking chair on the field. Butterflies will line the track with the names of babies being remembered that day and various other activities will take place throughout the day from 8 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.

Team registration ends March 15 and those interested in forming a team or helping with the cause can contact Alesha and Max Pfrimmer at (913) 297-0494 or
