About This Activity

Every Child, Inc. is hosting a foster care and adoption awareness 5k and 1 mile Run 4 Forever in honor of National Adoption Month.

There are approximately 21,000 children in Pennsylvania's foster care system alone.  Many of these children are unable to return to their birth families and in need of a permanent Forever Family where they can grow up feeling safe and loved.  This event raises awareness for the 1,000 children in Allegheny County's foster care system and the need for more foster and adoptive families to step up for these children in need.

We will have fun activities for kids to participate in at the shelter post-race! Face painting, arts and crafts and more!
