Walk To Remember and Run For Hope: A Wonderful Success... thanks to you!
More than 300 family members and friends enjoyed activities, entertainment and one another’s company and support at the 6th Annual Walk To Remember and Run For Hope. After the 5K Run, more than 200 family members and friends walked in memory of loved ones, led by Willow House Moran and Melancon families, carrying a lead banner with dozens of handwritten messages of love and remembrance to precious loved ones.
The financial success of this year’s event surpassed our hopes and expectations, once again, setting a new record with more than $55,000 raised! An impressive part of these funds came from pledge drives and, in particular, the highly successful pledge drive of Willow House friend and champion, Mike Maszka and his family, who raised more than $24,000! Our sincere thanks to our sponsors, to those whose personal pledge drives raised funds for the event and every one who contributed in-kind donations, financial support, participation and commitment to the Willow House. Thanks also to the dozens of committed and energetic volunteers without whom this event would not have been possible! This success would not have been possible without each and every one of you and your support!
Because of all who contributed their time, talents and funds, Willow House is better able to provide important support services to the grieving children, teens and families of Willow House. By showing your support, YOU have helped provide hope for a brighter tomorrow!
How To Help
The foundation of Willow House services is the enormously dedicated Willow House team of volunteers.
