Henry Ford SandCastles is a special place for children and families to interact with peers who have experienced the death of a loved one.

Will you help us Build The Castle?

Build The Castle is a unique fundraising opportunity to support the Henry Ford SandCastles program, which for more than 20 years has helped equip children, teens and their families with the skills and coping mechanisms needed to overcome grief and live happy, healthy lives.

With your help this fundraising campaign is an opportunity for friends and families to raise money to support SandCastles ongoing programs and its ability to continue to offer them free of charge to all families dealing with loss.

This campaign will culminate in a family friendly day at the Detroit Zoo on Saturday, September 21st. Each participant who raises $150 or more will receive tickets for them and a guest to attend this fun-filled celebration.
