Please Save the Date! We have decided to try and reschedule the Strides of Hope 5k to Sunday, August 30, 2020. We are planning on an early evening event starting with the kids run at 5:00 pm and 5k at 5:30 pm.

This is an evolving situation and details are still being worked out so please stay tuned! We want to keep all participants, volunteers, staff, and spectators as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. If social distance requirements are still in place on August 30th, we will be converting the race to a virtual 5k.

We’re so grateful for the tremendous support you’ve already provided through race registrations, sponsorships, and donations-in-kind, and hope that you will remain committed to helping our Center raise funding to continue responding to our area’s critical impacts of grief. Please keep encouraging others to join our race, and share awareness about our mission’s value to this community.

Please know that at the Center for Loss and Bereavement we are doing everything possible to maintain the stability of our care and access for people in need. We are continuing to serve the Center’s existing clients and group participants by offering new virtual means of connection and support.
