(ST. JOSEPH) – Runners, walkers, and other supporters are invited to register for the 15th Annual Run, Walk, and Rock for Lory’s Place, the grief healing and education center of Caring Circle. The event will take place in St. Joseph on Saturday, May 18, and is presented by The McLoughlin Family Foundation.

Since the opening of Lory’s Place bereavement programs in 2004, the organization has supported over 37,000 children and adults after the death of a significant person and offered 58 peer support groups in Berrien, Cass and Van Buren counties. Donations and participation in the Run, Walk, and Rock make it possible for Lory’s Place to keep offering this unique variety of programs and services to all who are grieving, regardless of their financial circumstances.

 “Every year, Lory’s Place is honored and grateful for the community’s support of Run Walk Rock,”

said Stephanie Kohler, Director of Lory’s Place. “All of 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. Your donations and participation in this event help to make this possible.”

Under the direction of event chairperson Christine Borah, the Lory’s Place 15th Annual Run, Walk, and Rock will begin at 8:30 a.m. The timed 5K run/walk course will take runners and walkers through St. Joseph’s Edgewater area, along Ridgeway, and into Tiscornia Park.  Chip timing will be used for fast and easy race results. All events begin and end at Lory’s Place in St. Joseph. Comfortable rocking chairs will be available for spectators throughout the morning along the edge of the course. Individuals or groups may choose to sponsor a rocker with a suggested donation of $150.
