In just 11 days, the staff at Adoptions From The Heart will be getting up bright and early to prepare for what will be a family fun-filled day at Delaware County Community College in Media Pennsylvania. Adoptions From The Heart will be hosting our 2nd Annual Find Her Footing 5K on April 6th from 9:00am-12:00pm.
Find Her Footing started last year as a way to raise money for AFTH’s Birthmother Fund. AFTH has worked with thousands of pregnant women considering adoption and The Birthmother Fund is a way to keep our work going. The Birthmother Fund supports women, both during and after their pregnancy, who have worked with our agency. Many of these women are in need of extra financial assistance for food, housing, transportation, and medical care; they are often parenting other children at home. With the help from our Birthmother Fund, AFTH offers lifetime support and guidance for the women we work with. The Birthmother Fund is used to help a woman “Find Her Footing” before and after making an adoption plan.
Last year, over 100 supports of all ages walked and ran our course with parents pushing strollers and carrying their children on their back the entire length of the course! With the support of the community, we were able to raise over $2,000 for Adoptions From The Heart’s Birthmother Fund.
Supporters do not have to run, or even show up to the event! You can support our mission simply by registering for the race, sponsoring a runner or walker, or making a “No Sweat” donation. Recruit your family, friends, and coworkers for join in the fun and support AFTH’s Birthmother Fund!
We’re getting ready for a morning of fun for the whole family. Boing! Bounce Rentals has donated a moon bounce for the kids. There will be other activities for the families from our many sponsors. Awards will be given for the top finishers (all ages), Kid’s Dash participants, top individual fund raiser, top team fundraiser, and more. For every $25 participants raise, they will receive an entry for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. There will also be other raffle prizes available! There will be bagels and refreshments from local shops. XTU radio station will also be at the race to provide music and will have some giveaways to a few lucky participants!
