Thank you for visiting our 10K Together fundraiser for the Center for Grieving Children! All the money raised on this page will go directly to the Center, where the funds will be used directly to help further their mission to provide a safe space, loving peer support, outreach, and education to grieving children, teens, families and the community.
I first heard of the Center for Grieving Children through my nephew, Galen. This past year, as a student at the Chaplaincy Institute of Maine, I went there for monthly workshops and got a better sense of just how much the Center does, and the breadth of support they provide to help ensure that no one grieves alone. When I heard about the virtual 10K to raise awareness and funds, I was excited to sign on to such a great cause.
Still grieving the loss of my own Mom, and approaching the one year anniversary of her death, I am more cognizant than ever of the importance of being part of a caring community during the grief process. My daughter Siena has been one of my biggest supporters, during Mom's life and afterward. Siena was supposed to head to Ecuador at the start of this month to do research on infectious disease there, however the pandemic has put her travels on hold, so she's home with us for the time being.
So, who better to ask to run with me to support this important cause?! Please join us by chipping in however you can.
