Brighter Days Grief Center is a Minnesota nonprofit serving families anticipating or coping with the death of a loved one.
Join us for a beautiful morning of community and remembrance! Take a step forward in HOPE as you honor your loved one by participating in a 10K or 5K untimed run or a 1 Mile Walk. We encourage you to form teams of friends and family to walk or run together! No fundraising required but is certainly appreciated!
Or, simply come to visit the RESOURCES area where over 30 of our grief and caregiver related partners will share information about the programs and services that fit best for your family. Moving into the holidays can be overwhelming; they will have their winter events, groups and programs for you to learn about and register for!
To wrap up your day, consider giving the gift of LIFE with a blood donation to Memorial Blood Centers. The blood mobile will be on-site for your convenience!
