Race to Remember is honoring everyday heroes in our communities. Losing a loved one is tough on families. Left unresolved, grief can drive a wedge between parents and children, siblings, and other relationships. Taking time to remember our loved ones in different ways can be a meaningful way to cope with loss. When families do these memorial rituals together, they learn to cope and grow together, therefore strengthening their relationships. We encourage families to participate in the Race to Remember as a team in the name of a loved one. Whether they run, walk, or cheer on their teammates, the Race to Remember can be a fun bonding experience for families in grief.
