Allina Health made a $2,000 contribution to St. Croix Valley Restorative Justice (SCVRJ), to support restorative response services, which provide support to individuals dealing with the aftermath of sudden traumatic death.

"Suicides, homicides, drug overdoses, traffic fatalities and other sudden deaths create complex grief and loss," explained Kris Miner, Executive Director of St. Croix Valley Restorative Justice. "The grant from Allina Health will support the work we do to support individuals, families and the community at large."

Allina Health is a sponsor of Restorative Justice's 4th annual "Walk for Awareness" from 6-8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, on the White Parkway in River Falls.

Tickets to the event are $25 and include dinner, a t-shirt, raffle prizes and live music. Tickets are available at the Restorative Justice Center at 215 N 2nd St, Ste 208.

"The Walk for Awareness not only raises funds for restorative response services, but also provides support to survivors and raises awareness of the things we can do to prevent sudden traumatic death in our community," said Heather Logelin, Allina Health's Director of Community Engagement in Western Wisconsin. "We are pleased to support this work."

The $2,000 contribution was funded through Allina's charitable contributions program and was recommended by a committee of River Falls Area Hospital employees.
