Dear Family and Friends -
As many of you know, OUR HOUSE is very near and dear to our hearts. After the loss of my sister Shirley, my mom needed a place to go and be able to grieve the loss of her daughter. OUR HOUSE was a safe and comforting place where she was able to share her thoughts and feelings during an extremely difficult time in her life. On Sunday, April 29th, my mom and I will participate in our 1st RUN FOR HOPE to raise awareness and money for OUR HOUSE.
My mom and I will be walking in memory of Shirley who we miss every single minute of every day.
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 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.
We hope all of you reading this will sponsor us, so that OUR HOUSE can continue to grow their wonderful programs.
Your support will make a huge difference. If anyone would like to run/walk in memory of someone near and dear to you, please register and join us. Together we can make a difference.
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.
We thank each and everyone of you in advance for your support. It means the world to us.
Be well !!!!
Viviane Franklin & Debbie Cohen (and family)
