|About Good Grief:
||Good Grief's mission is to normalize grief in our communities through education, advocacy and year-round grief support programs for grieving children, teens and adults. Our vision is to ensure that every child in New Jersey has access to free grief support after the death of a parent or sibling.
Good Grief supports hundreds of families each year in more than 150 cities and towns throughout New Jersey. Your contribution helps provide free programs to support grieving children and their families.
According to the New York Life Foundation, 1 out of 7 children experience the death of a parent or sibling before the age of 20. That's approximately 20,000 children who lose a parent each year in New Jersey.
Help us advocate for the needs of children so we can ensure no child ever has to grieve alone. Help us raise hope!

|About Good Grief's 5k Run and Walk:
||Good Grief's 5k Run and Walk for Hope helps raise awareness about the tremendous impact grief has on children and provides support for Good Grief's programs. Your contribution makes a difference because Good Grief does not charge for its services. After the death of a parent or sibling, children who receive support can grow-up emotionally healthy and able to lead meaningful and productive lives.
Your participation shows you care! By participating, you are helping Good Grief advocate for families and making a difference in the lives of children who need a caring place to remember, share, and develop healthy coping skills.
