About This Activity

About Run For Rue and 16Ways Foundation:

Run For Rue’s mission is to raise awareness for foster and adoption options here in the Commonwealth. As of January of this year, there are over 7,600 children in foster care in KY according to the KY DCBS. Every one of these children deserves a chance to be loved!


During and after the race, you will have a chance to visit with various non-profit organizations involved in the foster and adoption community here in KY. Information will be available as well as some possible surprises!

16Ways Foundation is a non-profit organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation will work on a national level to develop and implement workshops, seminars, camps, and other activities. These are designed to build self-esteem, promote responsibility for one’s own actions and overcoming obstacle’s, and demonstrate the importance of academics, knowledge of career options and professional development, community involvement, and mental and physical fitness among youth of all socio-economic backgrounds. The foundation’s primary focus is to work with youth between the ages of 8 and 18 and a secondary focus on adults in employment transition.
