The Cove Center for Grieving Children

Here is Renee's interview with Allison Gambler, Executive Director for The Cove Center For Grieving Children.

She shares about The Cove's mission and chats about their upcoming Run for The Cove events happening on October 17th!

Listen here:

Since 1997, when two parents sponsored the first event, The Cove 5K Race, Memorial Walk and Kids’ Fun Run has grown from a handful of participants to over 1,200 people. The event is held annually in October at Hammonasset Beach State Park. The USATF Certified 5K Race will now take place on the BURT (100% off road) and run along the water to Meigs Point. The 2 Mile Memorial Walk is also on the BURT Trail and Boardwalk with scenic beach views. The Kids Fun Run is held on an all grass special course.

In 2020, the event went virtual due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. It was still fun to get outside and participate in a virtual event.

2021 brings a second location for the first time ever! The second location will be held in Farmington at Winding Trails. A beautiful 3 mile walk through the woods.

All proceeds benefit The Cove Center for Grieving Children to help further our mission to provide "hope and healing" for grieving children and teens. The majority of funds raised by the event come from sponsorships and pledges to participants and teams who create their own fundraising pages and campaigns.
