Individuals, families, corporations and friends are invited to join the 1st Annual Reigning Roses Walk.
Team Walk the Walk will be walking in honor of Linda Graves, who inspired so many women to overcome the odds. She had courage, vision, and empathy. She believed everyone deserved help, and wasn't afraid to step outside her life to help another. May her spirit move you to get up and Walk the Walk this Mothers Day!
Participants are encouraged to walk with, or in honor of, a special woman in their life this Mother’s Day. We guarantee it will be extraordinary! Reigning Roses will feature a wonderful reception with mimosas, pastries and entertainment. Together, with Rose Haven guests, participants will stroll a 5k course through the streets of NW Portland. Prizes for the top fundraising teams and individuals will be awarded at the post walk celebration.
There is no registration fee. However, participants are encouraged to raise $100 or more in support of our women and children. Make a donation yourself, and ask others via Facebook, Twitter, email and in person to help. Watch your progress on your personal web page! It costs less than $200 to serve a woman or child for an entire year at Rose Haven. We serve 2,400 annually. See how many you can help!
Located in NW Portland, Rose Haven has been serving women and children experiencing the trauma of abuse, loss of home and other disruptive life challenges since 2007. Our mission is to maintain a safe, respectful community while providing guests with support and services to assist them in regaining stability in their lives.
