The 20th Annual Run for The Cove is an event to benefit The Cove Center for Grieving Children.
The Cove Center for grieving children is a volunteer-based organization designed to help children, teens and their families through the grieving process. Twenty-two years ago, the first Cove site was founded in Guilford with only 6 families and 8 children. Today, we are the largest children’s grieving center in Connecticut with 7 sites in Guilford, New Haven, Meriden, Stonington, West Hartford, East Hartford and Easton – Serving Newtown/Fairfield County.
This event is being held at the Guilford Fairgrounds on October 15, 2017. Rain or Shine.
