Mile for a Child - 5K

In support of social distancing and to help #FlattentheCurve , and in collaboration with our designated medical authority and community leaders, we have postponed our 2020 Mile for a Child 5k.

The good news that comes from postponing the event is that your individual and team pages will remain intact so that you can continue to fundraise to meet your goals and help even more children during this time.

We appreciate your support and understanding. We will continue to share updates as the come.

We wish you all good health and healing.

Why Run/Walk?

DID YOU KNOW? An average of 7 children are removed from their homes every day in the Tampa Bay area due to child abuse and neglect.  That is more than 2,500 a year and many cannot return home due to unsafe conditions.

With your support will be able to continue to provide emergency items and fund activities or needs to our foster children that are not covered by government funded services.
