This fundraiser benefits programs that bring hope and healing to children and youth in foster care who have been abused, and neglected. It is designed to be a fun event for entire family to enjoy!

You will participate in a 5K or 10K timed race or 1-mile fun run, and will also enjoy music, games and entertainment, and the opportunity to stop by our partners’ booths to learn more about fostering, adoption and child abuse awareness. All runs are available also as virtual option (fun-run format - please share photos with us!)

Proceeds from this event will go directly to fund our programs:

  • Transformational Summer Camps- designed to bring hope and healing to kids and teens in foster care.
  • Mentoring- year-round one-on-one mentoring and group gatherings for teens in foster care
  • Residential Treatment Center Outreach- visits to do empowerment sessions and bible study for kids and teens
  • Camper Reunions- Quarterly reunions bringing campers together for fun-filled group activities and celebrations.
  • The Net – Support for teens aged out of foster care and in need of practical support, such as life-skills classes, and help with resources including food and other basic essentials.

We provide year-round additional support to kids as needed, based on resources available.
