ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — Runners, walkers, and other supporters are invited to register for the 12th Annual Run, Walk, and Rock for Lory’s Place, the grief healing and education center of Hospice at Home, a Lakeland Health Affiliate.

The event will take place in St. Joseph on Saturday, May 21, and is presented by The McLoughlin Family Foundation.

Last year, Lory’s place provided bereavement services to over 2,600 children and adults, including bereavement programs in over 40 area schools. 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.

“Lory’s Place is fully funded by the generous donations and gifts from our community, and all proceeds from Run, Walk, and Rock help us continue to meet the needs of grieving children and their families,” said Lisa Bartoszek, director of bereavement and Lory’s Place, Lakeland Health.

Under the direction of event chairperson Christine Borah, the Lory’s Place 12th 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.

Registration for Run, Walk, and Rock is open now, with discounted rates available for early sign-ups. For more information and to register, visit www.lorysplace.org or call (269) 983-2707.
