The 6th Annual Turtle Trek Remembrance 5K/15K is set each year for the third Saturday in September on the scenic trail of Barr Lake State Park. The race, hosted by the Richard Lambert Foundation will benefit adults and children suffering the loss of a loved one, with grief support services, through free programs and affordable counseling.

Among the participants, many of whom will be honoring the memory of a loved one, will be the Chavez/Lambert family. Richard Lambert passed away unexpectedly at the age of 26 on September 4, 2012. Richard Lambert Foundation Family Grief & Healing Center began when parents, Susan and Jaime Chavez, identified the need for grief support services during their own struggle to understand and cope with the heartbreaking death of their son. 

Join us in remembrance of your loved one or to support those struggling through thier loss. The event is a wonderful reflection of coming together for one purpose, in honoring our loved ones.

Walkers and people of all ages are welcome!

Our hope is that you have a great experience and will come back to race with us again.

Thank you for supporting us in furthering our mission of providing care, support and essential resources to bereaved children and adults, allowing them to create a foundation for hope, healing and survival.
