Run & Remember

You're invited to our 10th Annual Run and Remember event on Thursday, May 23 at Jordan Valley Park!

Each year Lost & Found Grief Center hosts a memorial event and 5K to bring our community together to commemorate the memory of loved ones who have died. Run & Remember is more than a 5K. Once we walk and run in memory of those who have meant to so much to us, we end the evening with a remembrance program with music, readings, and a moment of silence. This is an opportunity for you to invite people to remember those who made our lives brighter.

We invite the entire community to come together for this meaningful evening and light up the night with lanterns in memory of our friends and family. This is truly a beautiful way to honor our loved ones together.
