Dear TCF families and friends.

In the spirit of friendship and as a way of honoring the memories of our children, siblings, and grandchildren, our chapter will be holding a Tenth Annual Walk to Remember September 24, 2022, at 9 am at Waterfall Park at 4501 S Bass Pro Drive, Independence, MO, located just behind Bass Pro. We hope not only that you will join us, but that you will also invite your friends and family members to participate.

For friends and family members who would like to join with you in the 2-mile walk, make photocopies, one for each person, of the attached registration form for them to sign.  You may also call 816-358-2969 or 816-678-7390 for additional forms or they may simply register at the walk. Early registration of walkers by Wednesday, September 7 will help guarantee we order enough walk T-shirts of the right sizes.

A registration fee of $25 includes a T-shirt and a card on which to write your child’s name and the names of all children you are remembering as you walk or $10 to walk only and name card (no T-shirt).

 In addition, to aid our chapter’s outreach to bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents, please use the attached form to collect pledges in support of your walk.  Pledges can be $5, $10, $20 or any amount—it all helps our chapter to accomplish its mission. If you know of a business or an employer that would be willing to donate items like water, fruit or any other items please feel free to contact me. All donations are tax deductible.

 Please meet at Waterfall Park at 8:30 am, a half hour before event, to register and pick up T-shirts. The actual walk will begin at 9 am.   Following the walk there will be light refreshments.

 As we walk in remembrance of children, siblings, and grandchildren, let us never forget the motto of The Compassionate Friends:

“We Need Not Walk Alone!”
