Description

Camp to Belong Maine is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Camp to Belong Maine 5K!

THIS EVENT IS VIRTUAL FOR 2021.

At Camp To Belong we believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to spend meaningful time with their brothers and sisters and we are dedicated to helping make that happen for kids living in foster care.  While many of us take for granted the opportunity to share meals, play games and say goodnight to our siblings each day, the kids we serve at Camp To Belong cherish these small moments that they do not always have.  These moment are what Camp To Belong works to create, so kids living in foster care are able to have positive childhood memories.    

A Message From Camp to Belong:

This year our Run To Belong 5k will be different than our first year.  As much as we would like to host our 5K in person, we felt that for the safety and well being of all, we would hold it virtually this year!  What this means is that you can run your race from your front door or wherever you are, as long as you complete your run between 4/30/31- 5/3/21. 

During this time, results and pictures can be uploaded.  Additionally, during your 5K, enjoy the FREE RaceJoy app, which will not only record your time, pace, and provide an estimated finish time; it also provides an opportunity for family and friends to encourage you along the way.  We'll do our part by providing some great audio clips to keep you motivated, too! 

Since we won’t be in person, and you can choose your 5k route, we will be doing awards a little differently this year!  We want to SEE you and will send out awards for photos during your run/walk for: the best running outfit, best view during run, best sunset and best sunrise, and funniest photo! 

Your event goodies will be sent to you the week leading up to the event, so look for them in the mail by April 28, 2021.

Thank You for Continuing to Support Camp To Belong Maine!

Camp To Belong Maine Mission Statement:  


"To provide Maine youth separated by foster and/or adoptive care with shared experiences and memories; andto empower them to advocate for themselves and their siblings."

 

Imagine being a child who was taken from his or her home due to unfortunate circumstances that occurred through no fault of their own. Children in foster care, adoption or other out-of-home placements are frequently separated from the people they love, including their brothers and sisters. They often miss out on normal childhood activities such as learning to ride a bike, creating art, swimming or enjoying birthday parties and special holidays with their siblings, friends and family - childhood rites of passage that many of us take for granted.


For many children in out-of-home placements, Camp To Belong Maine (CTB Maine) may be the only opportunity each year that they get to laugh and play with their siblings for a whole week. This opportunity allows them to share meals, play games and even just chat with or say goodnight to their siblings each day.  The children we serve cherish these small moments that they do not always get to share. These moments are CTB Maine’s goal – to ensure that siblings separated by foster care or adoption have positive childhood-sibling  memories.

 

CTB Maine is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to reuniting brothers and sisters who have become separated by foster care/adoption through a week of camp in the summer and other events throughout the year.  We believe that all siblings deserve the opportunity to spend meaningful time with their brothers and sisters, and we are dedicated to helping make that happen for our campers. We also believe that every kid deserves a special place where they feel like they fit in, and aren’t judged for having atypical family situations.  We provide these siblings a chance to escape the chaos of their ever-changing worlds and come to a place where they are no different from everyone else – a place where they truly belong.
