Imagine is a growing and evolving organization, that began in Westfield, NJ, and serves families from over 57 towns in NJ. Imagine provides free, year-round grief support for children and families coping with loss due to death. In addition to providing grief support at its two centers in Mountainside and Newark, Imagine provides grief education and training to schools, agencies, and workplaces, and on-site support after any traumatic loss.
One of the largest 5k’s in the area, Greta’s Run was founded in memory of Greta Schoenemann by her childhood friends Ben Nanna and Jayne Ruotolo. Greta was a Westfield High School freshman when she died from injuries sustained when a tree branch fell on her and her classmates during lunch. This year is the 10-year Anniversary of when the memorial race began.
After the 5K race and Kids Fun Run, we will hold a Memory Walk and invite everyone in our community to participate. You can \purchase a lawn sign in honor of a person in your life who has died. We will line the perimeter of this walk and the end of the run with the lawn signs of remembrance, sending a message that although our people have died, they are not forgotten – they are still with us.
We hope that you will join us and walk alongside our families, our children, and our community, and let everyone know that their loss matters, that they are not alone, and they are never forgotten.

The 1 Mile Memory Walk after the 5K Race is to commemorate the loved ones of Imagine’s Families as well as other families in the community. Lawn signs will be displayed along the route, which is also the last mile of the 5K, with names and dates of family members who died. We invite you to be a part of this Memory Walk even if you are not able to join us.
