About This Activity

This event celebratrates the true spirit of adoption.  Held this year at Jones Lake State Park in beautiful Eastern North Carolina, this run is sure to attract both beginners and seasoned runners as well.  All proceeds go directly to help bring a young boy (affectionately referred to as "AJLG") home from the heart of Africa to his forever family.

"Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that one child, the world will change." ~ Unknown
