Run, Walk, Rock

On May 20, 2023, our community came together to celebrate Lory's Place 19th annual Run, Walk and Rock. Since 2007, the McLoughlin Family Foundation has sponsored our event and we are incredibly grateful for their unwavering support. We had 858 registrants participate and enjoy the beautiful morning. Runners and walkers were able to enjoy the sunshine, while making their way along the waters of Lake Michigan and the tree lined brick streets of Ridgeway. This year we brought back our Champions for Children Challenge to honor the school with the highest number of participants. We had over 40 schools participate from all over the area, and St. Joseph high school won the honor of most students and staff registered. Boss Services provided the winning school $500. With the support of our community, we were able to raise $72,500 to continue moving our mission forward,  offering our vital grief support programs.

We are deeply grateful for your support! Thank you!

Stay tuned for more information on our 2024 event.
