Join us for our annual Mile Per Child Walk a thon fundraiser. This event gives our community and our volunteers the opportunity to come together for a fun-filled day of walking, running and biking to support children in foster care. We challenge YOU to come "walk a mile in their shoes!" Every $500 you raise provides a life-changing week of camp for a child or teen in foster care.
The goal of the event is to have fun with a purpose! The event will be free to the public. Various youth serving organizations will provide information for families about organizations that serve to prevent child abuse and will also provide an activity in which children and possibly their parents may participate.
We will also have food and drink vendors available. Music will be provided by 4 Unplugged and the Blenderz. Other kid-friendly activities will also be available.
We will be starting 2 NEW camps and a mentoring program THIS year! Big dreams mean a big budget so we're going to need YOUR help to make this happen! Join us as we walk/run/bike for the 765 foster children in our region. Better yet, let's do 4800 miles and represent ALL of our Louisiana foster children!
