Dennis "Scooby" Parham was the cutest kid you could ever know. Funny, mischevious, adventurous and fearless, he will always be remembered for his infectious smile, his sense of humor and the way that he loved and cared for family and friends - especially his wife Nicole, and his children Davon, Trevon, and Lovely. Scooby was a protector for those he loved, and knew no limits when it came to being there for his loved ones. A sports enthusiast with strong beliefs and principles, Scooby could always be found entertaining others, was always intune and at the center of every gathering. Scooby departed this life unexpectedly at the young age of 32 on July 15, 2017.

This Mother's Day, we are walking in his honor, to preserve his legacy, and to continue to spread the love that Scooby had for others. By walking for peace, we are walking to keep his spirit alive and to give back to our community in his name. We stand strong together, as a family, inseperable by tragedy, to celebrate his life, and remember him for the loving and loyal person that he was. We honor and thank the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute for their steadfast support, comfort, and love in our time of loss and heartbreak. 

We ask for your help in reaching our team goal of $2,000 and joining us on May 12th, 2019 as we walk for a more peaceful Boston. 

ABOUT 2019 Mother's Day Walk for Peace

Every year in the United States, approximately 15,000 people are murdered. For every homicide victim, there are at least 10 immediate people directly impacted by that loss. It is safe to say each year there are at least 150,000 new survivors of homicide victims dealing with the emotional, physical and financial stress of losing a loved one to a traumatic death such as murder. This is not including extended family members, classmates/colleagues, teachers/students, entire communities. Nor does this number include families who are impacted by a loved one committing a murder. Together we can heal and have an impact. 


Rise Up! Walk with us.  The Annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace started in 1996 so mothers of murdered children could receive support and love from their neighbors. Twenty-three years later, the Mother’s Day Walk continues to be a powerful way to honor our loved ones who have been murdered and embrace our partners in peacemaking. The Mother’s Day Walk is also the Peace Institute’s most important fundraising event. We hope you will help us raise our goal of $400,000 so we can continue to work to tip the scale toward justice for families and communities that are stigmatized by murder. 


All walkers must register. Registration cost this year is $10 per walker, however no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Registration fees go to help us reach our goal of $400,000 to sustain our programs and services.
