Thanks for stopping by my fundraising page! Every year, OUR HOUSE has a day where individuals can run or walk in memory of a loved one.

Hi,
Last year I joined the Board of Directors of Our House Grief Support 
Center. I had been volunteering for Our House for 14 years but I had 
never participated in their annual Run for Hope! I had always heard 
about how great the event was but to see the sea of runners all with 
the picture of their loved one who died on their back was extremely 
moving. Many of you supported me on my run last year and I was 
extremely touched and appreciative. I was able to raise over $6000!
 
I was so moved that I asked to co-chair the run this year. Please 
support me on my run and the hundreds of grieving children and families 
on theirs as well.  I will be running again in memory of my parents, my 
mother in law, and my dear friend Debbie.  By sponsoring me and 
donating you are helping me reach my goal to support grieving children 
and adults in their journey through grief.  As a volunteer group leader 
for many years I have had the privilege to accompany many children on 
this journey and know what Our House means to them.
 
Whatever you can give is greatly appreciated.  Thank you so much.
Fondly,
Ellen Simmons
