The Difference Between the Virtual Walk and the Physical Walk

There are actually two separate, yet very connected events
Two distinct, equally important, goals

THE VIRTUAL WALK

The Virtual Walk is the Fund Raising Portion
Join THE VIRTUAL TEAM
~  HOLDING HANDS HUGGING HEARTS  ~
email your family and friends an invitation
to make tax-free donations to our chapter
Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 this year

The Virtual Walk is all about Fund-Raising, done securely on line.

It requires no sweating, no leaving of your home, and is quick, simple, easy and really effective
in helping us to generate the funds that will allow us to continue to do Good Work
within our TCF East Of The River CT Chapter.

 THE PHYSICAL WALK

JULY 15, 2012   Center Spring Park  Manchester, CT
This is our day long community event.
You can walk the entire gentle almost 2 miles or only take one step- the choice is yours! 
We will be accepting donations to our chapter on the day of the Walk

WE NEED PEOPLE!!!
Our Big Goal on July 15 is to  generate as much publicity and visibility as we possibility can to let others know that The Compassionate Friends exists and what it is that we do.  Our goal is that when a family is in the hardest and darkest times of their lives that someone can connect them to us and we can be there, to hug, to hold, to care, to understand, and to offer the beginning of hope and healing; even when it seems that neither will ever be possible again after the death.

All Bereaved, their family and friends are welcomed to join us ~ no matter the loss.

We are hoping to have several hundred people
in attendance for the actual Physical Walk.
We  welcome not only bereaved families and their friends,
but anyone who cares and can empathize with the pain of those who have lost a child,
a grandchild or a sibling ~ from any age, for any reason.
Also welcomed is anyone who has experienced the loss of any loved one,
no matter the relationship,
as well as social workers, hospice volunteers, and community volunteers…
…anyone interested in GOOD WORKS and Paying it Forward

We want to call attention to
The Compassionate Friends
To Let People Know That We Exist
So that They Can Find Us When They Need Us.
