This is a dress up and run/walk 5K! Since our organization serves children we wanted to allow all our participants to bring their inner child out for a run with a good cause attached. Please dress up as your favorite cartoon characters, perhaps even as a cartoon group! We look forward to seeing all the fun costumes that will surely be brought to life for the children we serve.
BENEFICIARY Neighbor To Family's nationally accredited and evidence-based sibling foster care program places abused and neglected children with their siblings in safe and stable foster homes. Our superior performance outcomes are enhanced by our Professional Foster Caregivers. These carefully screened and highly trained individuals have played an essential role in working with the more than 11,000 children served by Neighbor To Family since 1998.
Children in Neighbor To Family care will typically return to their own homes or alternative permanent placements in less than 9 months (the National average length of stay in care is 22 months).
