A fun and safe place for grieving children.

Grief Relief 5Ks

How your sponsorship dollars make a difference in Massachusetts

Your Company can support this year's Grief Relief 5K and truly make a difference in the lives of children during their grief journey.

 

With one in seven children in this country experiencing the death of a parent or sibling before the age of 20, your company can help make a significant difference in the life of a grieving child. Comfort Zone’s programs are free-of-charge and empower each child to use positive and healthy coping skills to manage the ongoing effects grief has now and throughout their lifetime.

 

Studies show that children who are left to handle grief alone are:

5x more likely to die by suicide*

9x more likely to drop out of high school**

10x more likely to engage in substance abuse^

20x more likely to develop behavioral disorders^^

 

At Comfort Zone, we think even one child left to handle their grief alone is too many. Your support will assist us in providing children with a place, a voice and a community in which to grieve, heal and grow.

 

    “As a mother, I knew Comfort Zone Camp (CZC) was an invaluable organization for a child/children that suffered a loss. After visiting the camp – and receiving hugs from children with abundant gratitude for sponsoring them – it made me realize that, sadly, there are many children who have lost a parent or sibling who need a safe space to grieve, learn how to cope and, most importantly, to understand they are not alone.  As much as I wanted to comfort every child at the camp, sponsoring CZC is like wrapping your arms around all of these children at one time.”
