Run for Rainbows

About Run for Rainbows

Show your support for children who are grieving by Running with Rainbows! Starting May 1 and wrapping up June 12, you'll have seven weeks to meet your goal for Rainbows. Whatever that goal may be, you can save the last mile to celebrate with us at the Finish Line Celebration

1.   Register below to create a personal fundraising page and challenge others to help us raise $20,000. Set your fitness goal and  fundraising goal to raise critical funding for our programming. Create your own page or join a team!

2.   Tell your story! Whether you are a facilitator, board member, or an advocate supporting children in their grief, sharing why you support Rainbows helps others become aware of our mission and impact. When you let others know you support a cause, they are more likely to support it because of you.

3. Share on your socials! Your registration fee counts as your first donation towards your personal fundraising goal. Ask your friends, colleagues, family, and neighbors to help support you and our goal of raising $20,000.

4.   Log your activity! No matter how you're participating, track your progress on your personal fundraising page. 

5. Optional: Join us for the Finish Line Celebration on Sunday, June 12th! We'll walk the final mile together and have a celebration by our office in downtown Evanston.

Your Miles, Your Way

Log your own miles or progress from May 1- June 12. Share pictures, videos, and stories from you activity! 

 Stay engaged throughout the Run for Rainbows by sharing your story on social media, taking time to reflect on why you joined, and sharing awareness for youth who are grieving.

You can also save your last mile for June 12 when we have the Finish Line Celebration! We'll walk from the Rainbows Office in Evanston to Lake Michigan

How Your Support Makes a Difference

American children are experiencing significant losses in their lives:

    • 57% experience their parents' divorce 
    • 17% experience the death of a parent or sibling 
    • 5% experience the incarceration of their parent or caregiver 
    • 3% experience the deployment of a parent
    • Over 200,000 children have lost a parent/caregiver to COVID-19

Rainbows is here for those children through their grieving process. Can you support us in making sure no child ever grieves alone?​
