Join us for our inaugural Adopted By You 5K & Fun Run benefiting at-risk children in need of a forever family. Participate with us in making a difference in a child’s life and helping to make adoption possible.

Gift of Adoption’s mission is to fill the void that separates child from family through adoption assistance grants that give vulnerable children a permanent home and the chance to thrive. All proceeds from this family 5K and Fun Run event will go toward completing adoptions for families in Georgia. For more information about assistance grants offered to adoptive families, please visit our website at

Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome! We encourage and support all levels of athletes. The course is designed to be a 5K for athletes while providing a safe environment for those walking for general fitness and fun.  Strollers are welcome.

About Us

Doug Spicer and Kecia Tomlin developed the Adopted By You 5K & Fun Run and chose to partner with Gift of Adoption based on the amazing success GOA has with providing grants to so many deserving children and families over the past 20 years. Doug and his partner Brent are no strangers to adoption. They now have a beautiful 2-year old boy named Sawyer who they adopted through the open adoption process. During this process, Doug and Brent saw firsthand how expensive it is to adopt and how upfront costs of adoption can often delay or prevent adoptions from happening. They realized how fortunate they were to have the means to afford adoption, but their hearts ached for the children waiting and qualified parents yearning to bring them home. Doug and his partner wanted to find a way to give back and help adoptive families with the last bit of financial support they need to bring their waiting child home. Doug discussed his idea with his friend Kecia, and she immediately jumped on board. On June 10, 2017, Doug and Kecia will host the inaugural Adopted By You 5K & Fun Run (in partnership with GOA) to support the many children in need of a forever family.
