Soaring, Flying, Running for a Great Cause: The 6th Annual Find Her Footing 5k’s SUPER Fun-Filled Day
Adoptions From The Heart’s 6th Annual Find Her Footing 5k was held on Sunday, April 15th at Delaware County Community College.The race benefitted Adoptions From The Heart’s Expecting and Birth Parent Support Fund, which provides financial assistance to birth mothers both during and after pregnancy. Birth mothers in the past have received help with rent costs, transportation costs, and much more. We are happy to announce that we raised over $3,500 this year.
Last year, we incorporated the superhero theme into our 5k, using the slogan, “Superman was also adopted.” It was no surprise that many showed up in their superhero attire. Starting with the Kids’ Dash, children were draped in superhero capes, masks and clothing. Although the weather was a bit chilly and rainy, we still welcomed over 50 runners and walkers of all ages. We also welcomed back our wonderful volunteers from Villanova University’s chapter of Alpha Phi Omega and Marple Newtown High School’s Interact Club.
Once again, our raffle baskets were full of fabulous prizes. Some prizes included a signed hockey puck from the Philadelphia Flyers, a signed photo from the Philadelphia Eagles, various restaurant gift cards, free trainings from various gyms in the area, free parties from the Flyer’s Skate Zone and Wynnewood Lanes, and two time shares to a choice of over 160 locations.
We would also like to thank all our sponsors this year: Banville Law (Justice League Sponsor), The Law Offices of Deborah E. Spivack (Superman Sponsor), Arthur Hall Insurance (Kids’ Dash Sponsor), and Republic Bank. One runner brought in over $700 with her individual fundraising efforts. A few others brought in donations as well. Additionally, we received over twenty dozen bagels from Original Bagels, 300 bananas from Trader Joe’s, and water from Wegman’s. They have continually supported our events throughout the years, and we are very grateful for their contributions.
Thank to everyone who came out and supported this year. We look forward to seeing you next year!
