We invite you to join us as a sponsor of the Steps for Healing 5K Run/Walk and Remembrance Run. Your sponsorship will support Children Bereavement Center’s (CBC) FREE virtual weekly grief support groups for children, teens and adults throughout South Florida. For every $1,000 raised, a child can attend an entire year of CBC’s free grief support groups.
Our community has had another challenging year. With the pandemic, we have seen grief increase dramatically, and it continues to do so. On average, each person who dies from COVID leaves behind nine bereaved loved ones. The number of children who are losing parents and siblings before the age of 18 has greatly grown as well. Large disasters have also impacted our community – both the Surfside building collapse and recent earthquake in Haiti have left grieving families in their wake, right here in South Florida.
That is why we run, remember and raise funds.
CBC grief group participants and many other families who have suffered a loss in our community look forward to this event every year as an opportunity to memorialize their loved ones. For over 22 years, the CBC has provided free grief support to thousands of people. In these difficult times, your generosity and partnership will help ensure that CBC will continue to be here for our community for years to come.
