What is the Run For Hope? 

The Run For Hope is a day to honor the memory and celebrate the lives of those who have died. It is a time to share grief, loss and love; providing the community with a sense of hope and connection. Participants are invited to personalize their event t-shirt at no cost with the name and photo of a loved one who has died, and walk or run along our 5K route. 

What is the Adults Only In-Memory Ceremony? 

The adults only In-Memory ceremony includes a short two-block walk, that culminates in an intimate ceremony led by the OUR HOUSE clinical team. Participants will have the opportunity to share about their loved one who has died, and to listen as others as they share their stories of grief, hope and healing.
