Description

Celebrate National Foster Care Month by participating in the Sock Hop & Undie Rundie!  

This 5K run/walk raises awareness of the tangible needs of kids in foster care. FosterAdopt Connect distributes food, clothing, and other necessities to foster and adoptive families through Sammy's Window. One of the biggest needs is new socks and underwear for foster youth, who often come into care with only the clothing they're wearing.  

Sign up for this virtual race today. Then, Run! Hop! Skip! However you choose to get there, you must complete 3.1 miles. For this virtual event you can run from anywhere (e.g. your treadmill or favorite trail) between May 16 - May 22. Your race day swag will be sent directly to your home, including a t-shirt and finisher medal. 

And don’t forget a costume! We encourage you to have fun with our 50s "Sock Hop" theme and dress for the decade, or wear some fun colorful socks. Snap a picture or 10 second video and post it with #SockHopUndieRundie to participate in the costume contest. 

Proceeds support FosterAdopt Connect in our mission to keep foster kids safe and end the cycle of generational child abuse and neglect. Learn more at fosteradopt.org.
