Many years ago I lost a little baby girl named Samantha. She lived only 5 hours. I know firsthand how difficult a loss can be. So I created the Race For Grief event to honor her, bring community members together, and help others through the life-long grieving process.
"It’s nice to be around so many people who understand at the same time. Those 6 miles have come to mean more than any of the other thousands I have run. Lora, thank you again for sharing your story and creating this race!"
“I had an incredible experience this morning. Today was my first RFG and I’m so glad I was there. Granted, I cried most of the morning, but it was so healing and beautiful. I love and appreciate my finisher medal! I will be back every year you do this race!”
"Lora , I had such an overwhelming experience on Monday. I can’t put in to words how much I needed that or how much I’m looking forward to next year."
“This is exactly what the run did for me last year. Harlow was stillborn in April & the race was in June. I only had about 6 weeks to train, but it helped me work on me…It gave me a healthy outlet…It gave me something else to focus on…and it was my therapy.”
