Walk to Remember & 5K Run for Hope 2018
August 26, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
The 10th Annual Walk to Remember & 5k Run For Hope is a time for our families to come together as a community and honor their loved one’s. The event is open for all to attend. Following the timed 5k run, families are invited to walk the beautiful, lakeside, one-mile path in honor of a loved one. The trail is lined with memory makers that many families decorate together as an activity to express their feelings about grief together.
Willow House is a non-profit, social service organization whose sole mission is to support children, families, schools and communities who are coping with grief and the death of a parent or child.
Founded in 1998, Willow House is the only independent organization in the state of Illinois solely dedicated to supporting this population. Our mission is based on the idea that no child or family should ever grieve alone.
Funds raised from this event supports the Willow House school and community support jprogram and group services.
