This year, I'll be running (okay ..more like jogging or walking really, really fast) in memory of Chris Idoine.
I had planned to spend the rest of my life with Chris (or at least long enough to marry him, spend many quality years with him, and then have an amicable divorce), but he died suddenly in 1998. So I ended up in a Young Widow's group at OUR HOUSE instead. And now, many years later, I am still so grateful to OUR HOUSE and continually impressed by what they do for so many people.
Among other things, OUR HOUSE provides age & relationship specific groups for people dealing with grief & loss. And, thanks to donations, no one in need is turned away due to an inability to pay. Donations go towards covering the cost of joining a group for a child, teen, or adult who has lost a parent, an adult who has lost a partner, or perhaps a parent who has lost a child.
Any size donation is greatly appreciated.
