Cheer on our Miles + Memories Team in the Boston Marathon!

After months of intense training, our Miles + Memories Team is less than a week away from running the Boston Marathon! Learn more about our runners and what inspires them to take on this life-altering challenge for The Children’s Room.

The Children’s Room recently hosted an auction evening to benefit our marathon runners. Our cozy house was filled with energy and camaraderie as we all celebrated our five runners and reflected on the importance of The Children’s Room’s mission to serve grieving children, teens, and families. Thanks to some amazing volunteers, donations from local businesses, and the involvement of our generous TCR community, the event was a great success!
