EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2016
On October 16, 2013, the world suddenly and unexpectedly lost an amazing mother, wife, daughter, friend, attorney, and committed community member. On September 9, 2016 I will run the Hallucination 100 Mile Trail Ultramarathon in honor of my late wife, Holli Wallace. I am raising funds for the Children's Grief Center of the Great Lakes Bay Region, an organization that has been a great support to me and my two sons. The Children’s Grief Center provide a safe and healing environment for children, teens and their families as they grieve the death of a parent, sibling, close family member or friend. They create an atmosphere that fosters healing through peer support and trained volunteers. The participants use art, dance, theatre, story telling and writing to express their feelings and share their experiences with each other. As they travel this journey together, they know they are not alone and feel supported. Grief is an individual and unique process and each person is encouraged to allow themselves to grieve in the manner they choose. I hope that you will consider making a contribution to this excellent organization in Holli's honor.
