Welcome to HOPE 5K & 10K Virtual Walk/Run!!!
Proceeds from this event will go to benefit A Door of Hope Foster Agency. Their goal is to provide a loving home for every kid in crisis. Children in foster care need a safe, loving home to find hope and healing.
Every day 6-8 children are removed from their homes because of abuse, neglect or abandonment. Tampa Bay is home to the highest number of removals in the whole state of Florida. With the current number of homes, the state is not able to provide a home for every child entering the system. Many are forced to sleep in buildings or go night to night in different foster homes or group homes. The cost to place 1 child is $500. We would love to cover the cost of at least 10 children or more with this virtual race. Will you join us?
By signing up for this virtual run/walk you become a part of helping children in crisis be placed in loving homes.
