The Run For Hope 5K supports The Faine House, where young men and women formerly in foster care are supported in five essential areas as they move toward independence: education, housing & transportation, employment, health & wellness and personal finance. Upon move-in, each resident crafts a Life Plan to guide their progress. The Faine House assists in their growth through the development of life skills that empower them to enter our community as confident adults. Without help, the realities for youth formerly in foster care are not good:


Whether you run, walk or cheer us on, please join us at Lake Eola for the 5k and help us provide brighter futures!
