Many years ago I lost a little baby girl named Samantha. She lived only five hours. Click here to read the complete story. It was a difficult time for me and my husband. I know the struggles faced with a loss and how difficult it can be. I wanted to do something to honor her and bring community members together to help others through the grieving process (a life-long journey I believe) so I have organized the Race For Grief event. All those that have ever lost someone; a husband, wife, parent, sister or brother, friend, baby, miscarriage, grandparent etc are welcome to participate in the memory of their loved one. When you have lost someone, you never forget them. This is a day to honor their memory and come together to celebrate their life. The event will also raise funds to support local grieving programs like Caring Connections, The Sharing Place & Utah SHARE. Come join us or support a friend or family member that has lost someone. This may mean more to them than you know. All participants are encouraged to make a bring a poster about your loved one to display at the event and a pinwheel to line the finish. Thank you to all those that attend and support this event. It means so much to our family!
