Willow House is excited to host its 12th Annual Walk and 5K Run to Remember, with a slight twist! This year’s event will include a week-long family-friendly virtual Walk and Run, followed by an in-person Drive to Remember on September 27, 2020.
About Willow House
Willow House is a non-profit, social service organization whose sole mission is to support children, families, schools and communities who are coping with grief and the death of a loved one.
Founded in 1998, Willow House is the only independent organization in the state of Illinois solely dedicated to supporting this population. Our mission is based on the belief that no child or family should ever grieve alone.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Willow House services are provided at no cost to families.
Registration includes participation in ALL of the following events and activities:
Join us for a week full of music, games, crafts and other virtual activities for all ages! Stay tuned for more information coming soon.
Enjoy a peaceful memorial walk with immediate family or socially distanced friends at a location of your choosing.
Run in the annual Willow House 5K, but this year do it virtually! Create a team, run solo, or with family and friends...just pick your favorite spot, lace up your shoes, and go!
Join us for this moving, signature event featuring a socially distanced drive along a scenic path lined with hand-crafted memory markers honoring and memorializing loved ones who have died. The Drive to Remember will be held at the North Shore Unitarian Church in Bannockburn (¼ mile east of Willow House), from 2-4pm.
