Walking, Held up by Love, Walking....

Just one last post regarding the Tears Foundation's upcoming Rock and Walk at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma...

This Saturday June 16th, Steven and the boys and I will be walking for 3 hours, surrounded and held upright, by our dear friends and family, in the name and memory of our sweet daughter, Brynna Elizabeth Finnegan. 

We will also be walking hand in hand and heart to heart with too many other parents in exactly our situation. This Saturday from 10 a.m- 1 p.m, we will walk in memory of all of our sweet babies who have passed away entirely too soon.

Thanks to so many of you, we have met and exceeded my original total team fundraising goal of $1000. Not only have we surpassed it, we have more than doubled it!! As of today, Team Brynna has raised $2235. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The Tears Foundation has been one group that I personally have clung to for support in my darkest hours of grief, and through financial generosity like this, many more broken hearted parents will have the same support as they are forced down this awful road of grief.

If you would still like to join Team Brynna and walk along with us, today is the last day for online registration. Follow the link below:

If you would still like to donate (or know someone who would) you can still do so by following this link:

Of course, people can also register to walk the day of the event at Cheney Stadium beginning at 9:15 a.m

Thank you again to all of you that have continued to show such amazing love and support to Steven, the boys and myself.

This road is not yet becoming easier, but because of your caring and compassion, we are finding the courage and strength to walk another day, until some day it will.

I am so glad you surpassed the amount that you wanted to raise for the Tears foundation. I am sorry I can't be there as I had planned but know that we are there in spirit and will be sending prayers and love your way and thinking of Brynna and all of you on Saturday and everyday. Love you Julie
