About This Activity

Who: Anyone! Families, individuals, friends, children. 5k and Kids fun run! 

What: We are the Hudgins Family adopting a older child from the Ukraine!  So many children in this world have hungry hearts yearning for a permanent home with a loving family. Ukraine currently has over 100,000 children living in orphanges without families. We are working toward adopting a older child that will be aging out of the orphanage after he turns 16. He is currently 15 and we don't have much time. Adoption is the only way out of Ukraine for these orphans. Student Visas or Work Visas are not offered. Adoption can cost anywhere from 20,000- 40,000 dollars. Please join us in running as we raise funds to off-set the cost of our adoption. Each participant will get a race t-shirt. 

When: August 2nd- Registration starts at 7:00 am. Kids fun run at 7:45 and 5k starts at 8:15. Ashley Park in Newnan, GA (near Belk's)

Why: Because every child deserves a loving family! 

Enjoy activities and cultural things to the Ukraine after the race is over. 

Spirit Night (before event day to get t-shirt) to be annouced!! keep up with updates at our adoption race page 


Feel free to walk or run!
