Hope For Widows Foundation’s Widows of Hope VIRTUAL 5K Run/Walk is back!!!

Walk or run at your own pace. Run outside, use a treadmill, walk the dog, get a group together – it’s your place and pace.

The purpose of the virtual 5K (3.1 miles) is to get everyone active while bringing attention to the more than 245 million women around the world who are widowed and the challenges of losing a spouse. Anyone can join! Whether you’re a widow or a widower or a friend/family member showing support, everyone’s welcomed to participate. The deadline to register is October 19.

Recruit your friends and family to join you as you walk in honor of your spouse or a cause.

In addition to helping to show support for widows across the globe, you will earn cool bragging rights and an awesome finisher’s medal. Proceeds will benefit Hope for Widows Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization national support system for, and developed by, widowed women which connects new widows with other widows to offer peer-to-peer support and other resources.

While working full time, Chasity is also involved with several volunteer organizations that include grief facilitation, bereavement support at local hospices and leading several online grief resources. Her passion and heart is to serve and help others. She is currently one of the Executive Directors for Hope for Widows Foundation.

Chasity is also a co-author of a book titled ‘The Unwelcome Committee’ which was published in November 2016. It shares three different perspectives of becoming a widow and dealing with the process of grief overall.

Chasity met her late husband at the young age of eighteen. In June of 2009, her life would forever change when she lost her husband suddenly in a lake drowning at the age of thirty four years old. Finding out who she was again, raising her son and living life to the fullest even after this tragedy was a mission she was eager to accomplish.

Chasity enjoys volunteering, traveling, sporting events, writing and spending time with her family and friends.
