About This Activity

There's no better way to spend Mother's Day weekend than running to help bring orphans home to mothers and fathers!  Come join hundreds of other runners at the Coweta County Fairgrounds in historic Newnan, Georgia on Saturday, May 7, 2016 to be part of this exciting event that impacts the lives of children needing forever families.

We will use ORION Racing to professionally manage the 5K finish line and use RFID chip timing to ensure the most accurate finish times possible.

Over 360 runners and walkers participated in the inaugural RACE for the Orphans in 2013 to help bring a little girl from China home to her family in Newnan, Georgia. The ongoing mission of RACE for the Orphans is Raising Awareness, Compassion, and Education about the needs of orphans around the world.

This 4th annual event is a fundraiser to help other local families who also have a heart to adopt and love an orphan. The RACE atmosphere provides an exciting and family-friendly time of healthy competition. More importantly, though, the adoption momentum grows when a community comes together for the united objective of helping to reduce the world’s 150+ million orphan population...even if by just one child at a time.
