Marathon Monday is just around the corner!

In just four short days, the 15 runners of TCR's Miles & Memories Team will be running towards the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

2014 Miles & Memories Team
They have trained long and hard for this moment - a moment that some of them were prevented from reaching last year. 
They sent fundraising emails, hosted events, and raised awareness and much-needed support for the work TCR does with grieving children, teens, and families. They have shared so much through their stories, time, and efforts - and we couldn't be more proud.

If you haven't already, there is still time to show your support and contribute to the team's fundraising goals. Visit the team page to make your gift and read the inspirational stories of our 15 amazing runners.
Follow us on Twitter, @childrensroom, on Marathon Monday for updates and an inside look at our team's progress! 
The TCR community will be cheering on our runners from the sidelines at Mile 18. If you're interested in joining, contact Becca at for more information.

First Teen Night Offered at TCR Last Month
TCR's first Teen Night was a big hit!
On Friday, March 21st a group of teens gathered at The Children's Room for an evening of fun, connection, and brainstorming future teen activities.
Some of the teens have attended peer support group either at TCR with their families or through their school, and some teens were new to The Children's Room.
Everyone had great ideas for how they wanted to stay connected with each other and TCR. Stay tuned for more information about future teen events!

Our Heartfelt Thanks
We are grateful to so many of you whose support enables all that we do here at The Children's Room. A word of thanks for some special donations of time, talent, and much-needed resources: 
  • All our gifted, reliable, caring volunteers (close to 100!), without whom we could not reach nearly as many children and families... thank you, one and all.

The Children's Room has partnered with Donate for Charity to make it fast and easy to donate your old vehicle to TCR. Your vehicle will be picked up - free of charge! - from anywhere and TCR will receive a donation in the amount of the vehicle's value.
