The 2nd Annual SuperHero 5K took place on October 15th on the beautiful waterfront in downtown Safety Harbor. With over 550 runners, it was amazing seeing so many of you in costume supporting children in foster care-truly heartwarming. If you’d like to see photos from the race, you can check out our Race Facebook page as well as our Foundation Facebook page (more will be added as they are received). Your support helps us deliver on the promise of our mission and vision to make sure that every child has a voice in court and safe and permanent home with the opportunity to thrive. Thanks to donors and entry fees we were able to raise $25,000 to support children’s needs requests throughout the year that include things like tutoring, bedding, afterschool activities and uncovered medical expenses.
To give you a sense of what $25,000 can do for our youth: that could purchase almost 100 beds, pay for over 500 hours of tutoring, or support 100 youth to attend an extra-curricular afterschool activity or summer enrichment program.
Special thanks to all of our sponsors. Please support those who support our children- next time you visit tell them thank you for being a hero to a child!
