The Bereaved Families of Ontario - SW Region
Bereaved Families of Ontario - SW Region was formed in 1984 by a group of bereaved parents and individuals to share their insights and experiences with other grieving families and lend support to them as they restore a balance to their lives following the death of a child.
As an organization we cannot combat the fact that children die. However, we can provide the crucial out reach and emotional support that families need to live through, and eventually overcome, the challenges of their profound grief. We offer a wide range of programs and services to bereaved parents, bereaved brothers, sisters and children who have experienced the death of a parent.
"We are the bereaved helping the bereaved learn to live with grief. When a child or parent dies, we can help the healing begin."
Help the Bereaved Families by pledging to your favourite runner. Click the link below and click on the runner's name that you want to pledge to.
Please help the Bereaved Families do more by collecting pledges and handing them in on race day. The top 3 pledge collectors will be given prizes donated by our generous sponsors.
