A Memory Grows is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that serves as an outreach to grieving parents, and as a resource to hospitals, clinics, hospice groups, churches and other nonprofit organizations.
The Legacy 5K Fun Run is A Memory Grow's annual run and walk. This race is open to anyone who would like to join us as we honor the lives and legacies of our children. Our participants include parents who have experienced the death of a child, friends and family of grieving parents, community members who want to support our organization, and casual or serious runners and walkers. The Legacy 5K is an uplifting event full of hope, community, and love.
A Memory Grows is only the second organization of its kind in the United States. The focus of our retreats and special events is to bring to support and walk beside families on the journey of grief, while offering hope and the promise that we are not alone.
Since 2017 A Memory Grows has provided retreats, special events, resources, in-person and virtual support to parents in 17 different states and Canada. All proceeds from our Legacy 5K will offer hope and support to grieving families and allow us to expand our services and reach.
