Join Family Lives On for the 2017 Philadelphia 1/2 Marathon! Lace up your running shoes for a great cause, to help continue traditions for children who have experienced the death of a parent.
We welcome teams like "Megan's Smile" organized by Dennis Cosgrove in memory of his amazing wife Megan. In 2015 Megan passed away suddenly after giving birth to their son Declan. Dennis and his team run to raise money for other children, like Declan, who have experienced the tragic death of a parent. We thank Dennis and "Megan's Smile" for inspiring others to sign up and run with us!
The Family Lives On Tradition program enables children to continue a cherished tradition or activity once celebrated with the parent who died. Whether it's continuing to plant flowers in spring, fishing or flying kites on the beach, this holistic way of healthy grieving turns survivors into thrivers! Help us raise funds and awareness of the need for childhood grief intervention. #1in20 #GiveGriefWords #FamilyLivesOn | www.familyliveson.org
