Fostering LIFE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering foster youth to excel in life (leadership, independence, faith, and education). Fostering LIFE provides the resources and support to help foster youth to excel academically, engage in extracurricular activities, and develop leadership skills. This event is held to raise awareness and funds to aid Fostering LIFE in expanding our ability to support the needs of youth in care.
Join us following the race for a service component in which we will collect toiletries, undergarments, and baby items and pack in duffels for youth transitioning into foster care and enjoy family-friendly festivities.
