VeritasAdminEvents, News

On Monday, June 8, more than 300 supporters of Survivor Resources gathered together for our 13th annual nonprofit fundraiser, Walk to Remember, Walk for 2015 candle lighting ceremonyHope. Over $50,000 was raised for our organization this year, which helps support our work with individuals dealing with the loss of a loved one due to homicide, suicide, overdose or accidental death.

We were thankful for a beautiful Minnesota evening, and enjoyed our time walking around Lake Como in St. Paul. Divine Swine served a delicious barbeque in the Como Park East Pavilion. We were visited by the St. Paul police department’s K-9 unit and mounted patrol. At dusk, those who wished to light a candle in memory of the loved one they lost, were able to do so.
