Forever Home Run
The Forever Home Run began in 2015 as a partnership between Lutheran Adoption Service and Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church to raise awareness and funding to support foster children waiting for their forever families. The event normally takes place at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, but this year, our primary focus is the safety of our families, youth and community at large. This is why the 2020 Forever Home Run will be a "5K Run or Walk Race" and held 100% virtually. It’s a much different race experience, unlike any we have held before, but our mission remains the same - to raise much needed funds that will benefit children awaiting a forever family, adoptive families of LAS, and program enhancement supports that benefit a wide range of families annually.
Forever Home Run will be similar to our annual in-person race, but instead of running along the same course with other runners, participants can complete their 5K run or walk anywhere they choose! You can race against on your treadmill, run laps around the block, or even walk with your dog
Without Forever Home Run funds, what LAS programs and services are in danger of being cut or reduced?
- Ability to provide clinical adoptive parent support groups, individual and family therapy and additional post adoption resources will be impacted
- Program design focused on unmatched children would have to be scaled back and innovations will be limited
- Ability to meet specialized child and family needs in real time will be inhibited
- Flexibility for provisions for children that allow children opportunities to explore individual interests (sports, hobbies, camps, etc..) generally available to children outside of the child welfare system that build self-esteem, resilience, identity and skills a would also be limited.
Lutheran Adoption Service facilitates on average over 400 adoptions per year - in large part thanks to the generosity of our participants and sponsors. Please join us in 2020 for a fun virtual event that really does make a difference in the lives of children and their forever families.
