Steps For Healing 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser

Saturday, November 13, 2021
Steps for Healing is a 5K Run/Walk fundraising event benefitting the Children's Bereavement Center.  Our grief group participants and many other families who have suffered a loss of a loved one in our community look forward to this event every year as an opportunity to memorialize their loved ones. 

This year, attendees may choose whether to attend in person at Zoo Miami or “Run Where You Are.”  CBC supporters and group participants are based across all of South Florida and the nation, so for those who cannot attend in-person, the opportunity to register as a virtual attendee is an added benefit! 

Run or walk in memory of a loved one and support grieving families by raising funds for Children's Bereavement Center (CBC), which provides FREE virtual grief support groups for children, teens and adults in South Florida.
