Did you know there are more than 153,000,000 orphans in the world today? Only 250,000 are adopted each year. 99% will likely never be adopted. 

These numbers can be overwhelming, but the good news is that on Saturday November 18, 2017, every generation will come together to Defend the Orphan one step at a time. By participating in this event, you can help Coreluv continue to provide the 6 basic needs to orphans around the world.

What To Expect:

Join us on Saturday, November 18 for our 3rd annual Defend the Orphan 5K Run/Walk at Fellowship of Montgomery for a chip-timed, paved and trail run.
