Our team is participating in the Good Grief Steps to Resilience Virtual 5K event in honor of Patricia Hawkins Vaillancourt. She was an amazing woman, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend to many.
Over the past 6 years, I have been a facilitator at Good Grief and seen first hand the incredible impact that Good Grief has had and continues to have on families experiencing the loss of a loved one. I can think of no better way to honor my mother than to participate in this virtual 5K event.
The funds raised will be used to provide unlimited and free support to children, teens, young adults and families after the death of a mother, father, sister and/or brother through peer support, programs, education and advocacy. Especially now, during this period of unprecedented loss due to the current pandemic, Good Grief's services will be in even more demand.
