“Here at Good Grief, the kids understand something that most do not: Grief serves a purpose. It is a natural response that challenges us to our core and, with support, can mold us into more resilient beings by reshaping the depths of our love. The kids and families at Good Grief understand that grief can be good with the help of a compassionate and supportive community,” says Joe Primo, Good Grief CEO.
The 4th annual Good Grief 5K Run and Walk for Hope on Sunday, June 4th brings together the community in support of Good Grief’s families, and in memory of loved ones who have died. It is a major fundraiser for the organization that raises critically-needed funding for peer support services, education, and advocacy throughout New Jersey. Primo continued to say, “Grief does not discriminate, anyone can be affected, no matter their age, sex, or race. Together, we are striving to create a world where no child ever has to grieve alone.”
