On Sunday, April 28, 2013 OUR HOUSE will be hosting the 19th annual Run for Hope – a day dedicated to celebrating and honoring the memory of those close to us who have died.
Last year I joined the Board of Directors of Our House Grief Support Center. I had been volunteering for Our House for 14 years but I had never participated in their annual Run for Hope! I had always heard about how great the event was but to see the sea of runners all with the picture of their loved on who died on their back was extremely moving. Many of you supported me on my run last year and I was extremely touched and appreciative. I was able to raise over $6000!
I was so moved that I asked to co-chair the run this year. Please support me on my run and the hundreds of grieving children and families on theirs as well. I will be running again in memory of my parents, my mother in law, and my dear friend Debbie. By sponsoring me and donating you are helping me reach my goal to support grieving children and adults in their journey through grief. As a volunteer group leader for many years I have had the privilege to accompany many children on this journey and know what Our House means to them. Whatever you can give is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
