Walk to Remember & 5K Run for Hope 2017

Remember and Honor Loved Ones - Support Grieving Children and Families Preview

Recent research indicates that 5% of all U.S. children 15-years-old and younger will suffer and grieve the death of one or both parents.

In the state of Illinois that is more than 147,000 children. This number does not include the countless children and families who are grieving the deaths of siblings, children or other family members. Willow House is the only independent organization in the state whose sole mission and passion is to serve this population.

Willow House provides support services to children, teens and families who are grieving the death of a loved one. Since 1998, Willow House has been the go-to program in the greater Chicago area, called upon to help young grieving families, school communities and others in crisis as they cope with death. All services are provided at no charge.

Our annual Walk to Remember & 5K Run for Hope is one way we unite as a community to honor the memory of loved ones who have died, while raising essential funds to keep our programs going. This year, with an increased demand for our services, we hope to raise more dollars than ever before. We need your help to make this happen!

Your gift ensures we can meet an increased demand for grief support services across Chicagoland. There are three ways you can help grieving children and families today: make a donation, create a fundraising page to share with your network, and register for our 9th annual Walk to Remember & 5K Run for Hope on September 17th.

There is an impact behind every dollar raised:

  • A gift of $25 provides art supplies for one support group activity.
  • A gift of $50 provides one family with a one-on-one intake session with a licensed counselor to prepare them for group activities.
  • A gift of $100 provides dinner for a group.
  • A gift of $500 can fund an expressive arts workshop.
  • A gift of $1,000 can fund an 8-week school based support group series.

At the heart of this and all of our fundraising efforts is our goal to continue providing grief support services at no cost to families who need us. From the staff and families of Willow House, we thank you for your support.
