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.
