Every year, more than 2,000 adults and children throughout southern Wisconsin receive grief support from Agrace when they need help coping with the loss of a loved one. This essential community service is available to anyone who has experienced a loss due to death, even if the person who died was not an Agrace hospice care patient.
Communities are experiencing a growing need for grief support, heightened by the COVID-19 pandemic. Because Agrace does not receive any type of reimbursement from insurance for its grief support services, they are funded primarily by community donations. Proceeds from this year’s Race for Agrace fundraiser will benefit the Agrace Grief Support Center in Fitchburg and the community grief support that Agrace provides throughout southern Wisconsin.
