This is the 20th anniversary of the Lory's Place Run, Walk, Rock to benefit Lory's Place, a grief healing and education center of Corewell Health. Your participation in this beloved event, as well as your donations to Lory’s Place, continues to assist the team in providing vital support to our hurting communities throughout Southwest Michigan and Northern Indiana.

More About Lory’s Place

Since the opening of Lory’s Place bereavement programs in 2004, we have been honored to support over 55,000 children and adults after the death of a significant person. Our programs reach beyond our facility doors to over 63 peer support groups in Allegan, Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren counties. All the programs and services at Lory’s Place are available at no charge. That means that no child or adult is ever turned away because of an inability to pay.

The financial support through Lory’s Place fundraisers, like Run, Walk, Rock, go a long way in ensuring safe spaces will be created for those who have experienced the death of someone significant. This work could not happen without you. The children, adults, and families who are part of Lory’s Place join us in expressing deepest gratitude to you for supporting our mission of grief healing.

Thank you!
