Brief Description of Event: The TEARS Foundation’s Rock & Walk event is a time for our communityto gather, to walk and to rock, and lift up the families in our local communities who have been affected by the loss of a child. This annual event allows registered walkers to “walk” in honor of a child, or simply in support of others. Each team of walkers may also “rock” in the rocking chairs placed at the event site. Rocking chairs signify the heart of the walk, which is to raise funds for families who have lost a baby and are in need of funeral assistance and emotional support services. This is a family friendly event with children’s activities, free refreshments, music, a raffle, a remembrance table, and the opportunity to share and honor your baby/babies.

Event Contact Name: Erin Hamilton

Event Contact Email: [email protected]

Event Contact Phone: 2693690355

Brief Description of Event: October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Nearly one in four pregnancies results in loss. It is often a lonely grief, and pain is overlooked or treated insensitively by those who do not comprehend that a person, a child, a loved one, has been lost. Women and families often grieve alone and in silence.

In December 2015, Ella Marie lived 3-1/2 incredible days with her twin brother Lennox and their family. After their loss, Erin and Brad Hamilton looked for a place to honor and share their grief with others, but could not find an event like this near SW Michigan. It is the hope of the Hamiltons that the Inaugural Ella’s Rainbow Walk toRemember givesother families a place to honor their own grief and losses.

The inaugural Ella’s Rainbow Walk is Sunday, October 15 at 4:00 pm starting from The Livery Microbrewery in the Benton Harbor Art District. Proceeds will be distributed equally to Duke University NTD Research Fund and Share Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support.

Brief Description of Event: A gathering of remembrance created in honor of my niece, Violet Evelyn Ochoa, who was born still on August 12th, 2011. This event is to honor the babies who were taken too soon from pregnancy or infant loss. We will be meeting at 6:45 to come together, share our stories, and have a candlelight vigil starting at 7:00 pm. We will have luminary bags in memory of our babies and we will be reading the names of the babies we’ve lost. You will also be able to personalize a seashell in memory of your baby to either take home with you or leave on the beach.

If you’d like a name added to the list and a luminary bag with your baby’s name you can email me ahead of time at [email protected], message me through the facebook page, or we can always add it before we start.

You don’t have to live in Northeast Ohio to participate. Anyone can have a baby honored, no matter where in the world you are. We will post pictures of each luminary bag after the ceremony so that those of you who could not attend can still see the luminary bag made for your baby.

This event will be held rain or shine. Weather permitting, we will be meeting at the fire pit located on the western end of the beach. If the forecast calls for rain, we will be meeting at the beach shelter, also located on the western end of the beach.

Thank you so much to the Fairport Harbor community for your help in planning Violet’s Light this year. It is an absolute honor for me to plan and hold this event every year, and I look forward to seeing you all on October 15th.
