Bringing awareness to pregnancy and infant loss, and as part of its ongoing mission to support bereaved families and honor babies lost during infancy or pregnancy, the South Carolina Chapter of the TEARS Foundation will host its Memorial Rock & Walk from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28 at Shelter Cove Community Park on Hilton Head Island.
The Rock & Walk is a community event for friends and families to honor those who have suffered a pregnancy or infant loss. It will have family-friendly events including children’s activities and a raffle. There will also be a memorial walk along a path decorated with colorful butterflies with babies’ names and symbolic empty rocking chairs.
The money raised from the walk will help South Carolina families who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss, the core mission of the TEARS Foundation. The nonprofit organization assists bereaved parents with the financial expenses of making final arrangements for their precious baby who has died, and support services for bereaved families on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month at Hospice Care of the Lowcountry.
