The Widow Dash 5K is a run for your life! As a widowed community we run because we can. We run in honor of the spouses we have loved, and lost. We run for inspiration. We run towards hope. This 5K helps us step forward literally as well as figuratively. We regain our strength by being willing to move forward one small step at a time.
YOU can support our efforts. Do you know someone who is widowed and always wished you could DO something for them? Has Soaring Spirits helped you or someone you love to find a brighter tomorrow? Your fundraising efforts will help us to ensure that our programs are available for years to come. Death isn't optional...our services will always be needed! So become a runner...either in the flesh or virtually. Yes, you CAN be a virtual runner, but you won't burn nearly as many calories!
How will we use your donations? Every dollar raised will help us expand our reach to communities all over the world. AND we'll provide scholarships to our Camp Widow program. Huh? Camp Widow?
What in the world is Camp Widow? Well, it is a weekend that is full of fun, laughter, camaraderie, and hope. This event brings together widowed people from across the country, and around the world, to help them answer the pivot question of widowhood...what now? When the future you dreamed of (whether that is having a family together, watching your grandchildren grow up, building your dream home or traveling the country...whatever you dream) is no longer possible, what are you supposed to do with the life you have left? Camp Widow helps our campers explore that question, and we give them tools for finding the answer.
So JOIN the team and raise some money! We have prizes, we have truffles (after the race friends), we have hope...and that is what really matters.
