We will be participating in the 18th Annual Run for Hope in honor of Shawn! Our House Grief Support Center is an organization that will be a big part of the lives of Kelly and Lauren. They are in support groups there that are tailored to their age with other children that have lost a parent. It will be a safe and comforting place where they will learn coping skills and shed tears with peers and professionals that know what they are going through. I am so happy to have discovered Our House and am looking forward to the Run to support their cause and hold hands with friends as we walk in loving memory of Shawn.
On Sunday, April 29th, OUR HOUSE will be hosting the 18th annual Run for Hope, a community-wide 5K walk/run. All proceeds from the event benefit the essential services offered by OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center.
The run starts and ends at the West L.A. Farmer's Market on Santa Monica Blvd. & Corinth Ave. Adults only Memory Walk is at 7:30am. Run for Hope starts at 9am. Followed by a festival from 9:30 to 1:00.
The Run for Hope is an opportunity for people to not only help a worthy local charity, but to also walk to honor the memory and celebrate the lives of those close to them who have died.
This is the only walk of its kind in the nation and is a moving day of celebration and hope. We invite the entire community to join us in A Run for Hope... A DAY FOR HEALING.
