EVENT: Ride for Remembrance
EVENT DATE: Sep 26, 2015
NOTE: This fundraiser is a joint effort between Common Ground Grief Center and The Alcove Center for Grieving Children and Families. All proceeds will be split 50/50 at the end of the fundraiser.
STORY: Helping children and families cope with the devastating loss of a loved one is the goal of The Alcove Center for Grieving Children and Families in Northfield and Common Ground Grief Center in Manasquan. Both Common Ground and The Alcove are non- profit organizations that teach children coping skills to deal with the overwhelming emotions that follow the death of a loved one. Our goals are achieved through peer support groups that allow children the opportunity to be with others their own age who are going through the same thing. Each year we see hundreds of children who would otherwise be alone in their grief. Groups meet regularly throughout the year and are offered cost free to the children and families. Because we do not charge for our services we rely heavily on donations and fundraisers. The Ride for Remembrance will help keep our programs cost free to the children and families of New Jersey who are grieving the devastating loss of a loved one.
