About This Activity

This 5k race is a fundraiser to help offset the expenses of our international adoption. More information about us and our adoption journey can be found on our blog

The race route is at the Lions Club Park run & bike trail in Killeen, Texas. The route is relatively flat and is a great location for beginners to run their first 5K! You also have the option of walking. There is a third option - a shadow run. With this option you can register for the race and run a 5K on your own if you don't live in the area. Run individually or get a team to run together!

Race shirts can be pre-purchased. They will be picked up the morning of the race. You may also buy them that morning from any ones leftover however quantities and size may be limited. If you are doing a shadow run out of the area, we will mail your run shirt to you at no extra charge. AUGUST 27TH UPDATE: THE SHIRT ORDER HAS ALREADY BEEN PLACED. THERE WILL BE SOME ADDITIONAL SHIRTS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE BUT QUANTITIES ARE LIMITED.

You have an opportunity to make an additional donation directly to our adoption agency, America World Adoption, during the registration process. These will be credited directly to our account and help to offset adoption expenses. We expect total expenses to exceed $25,000.

Thank you SO MUCH for your generousity!

T-shirts will be available for purchase in limited quantities the morning of the race.
