Calling all runners to join with Team Tradition and Team Megan's Smile to run the Philly 1/2 Marathon for Family Lives On Foundation. Money raised will support annual traditions for children and teens grieving the death of a parent. Continuing a tradition in honor of a parent who died helps these children grieve in a healthy way. Healthy grieving leads to post-traumatic growth and helps honor the past, celebrate the present and build the future for a grieving child!
The Family Lives On Tradition program enables children to continue a cherished tradition or activity once celebrated with the parent who died. Whether it's continuing to plant flowers in spring, fishing or flying kites on the beach, this holistic way of healthy grieving turns survivors into thrivers! Help us raise funds and awareness of the need for childhood grief intervention. #1in20 #GiveGriefWords #FamilyLivesOn | www.familyliveson.org
Each runner who raises the minimum $500 requirement will receive a guaranteed bib for the 1/2 Marathon on Saturday, November 17, 2018. Open to ages 14 - 99. We have full Marathon spots as well. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Thank you for supporting a grieving child!
