After the race, participants were invited to join activities including face painting, a jump house, and treats!

About Friends of Aine
Friends of Aine is a 501c3 non-profit organization established to provide bereavement support services to grieving children and families.
Borne out of the tragic loss of Aine Marie Phillips (pronounced Ahn-ya) at age 8, and the recognition that bereavement services for Aine’s surviving 5-year-old sister, Bella, were sadly scarce, parents David and Christine set out to fill this void. Friends of Aine was developed to create an enduring legacy for Aine that embodies her spirit and character by helping children and their families who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
