Outback In The Ozarks

Outback In The Ozarks Children's Names

A crew of crazy runners with GIANT hearts running 205 miles in honor of children who have lost a brother or sister. Raising awareness for remembering the grieving sibling. Each mile will be dedicated in memory of a deceased child(ren) and in honor of thier livng siblings. To have your family included in the memorial/honor run register here.

2017 will mark the 3rd year TeamMercy.org gathers 12 runners and 6-10 support crew to run 200+ miles in memory of children gone too soon and in honor of their surviving siblings. Each mile run celebrates the life of a siblings loved and cherished. Registering a sibling set is free.  (look below for more instructions) If you would like to make a donation in honor of siblings you may do that here as well.  Each dollar raised helps support the living siblings through child specific grief resources. TeamMercy sends grief packets and awards Mercy's Gift. Grief packets include: Art with Heart journals, Kids learn about Death and Celebrating Life books, Coloring Books and more.  Mercy's Gift is funding for an extracurricular, academy or mental health related activity.

How this works:

Register your family (or a friend's family) as the parent of the children. The form will later ask the children's names, deceased and living.  When registering Particpant 1 please list the name of an adult. This adult will be the contact person for the family. It will then ask for names of children. Please list the deceased child first.  We ask you to register so we have names spelled correctly, a point of contact for the family/friend, and a way to keep track of all the sibling groups we are running in honor of in one location.

What the runners are doing:

Our team of 12 are running... You are NOT registering to run!
Beginning around 6:00am Friday morning 12 runners and several support crew will begin a 205 mile journey. A test of endurance and fortitude. Each mile is dedicated to a sibling set, where at least one sibling has passed. We run to honor and  remember. There is no cost to the families.  Follow the adventure on our TeamMercy FaceBook page.
