The Sock & Undie Rundie is going virtual!

In light of the public health situation, we're going virtual for the Sock & Undie Rundie 2020. If you're already signed up, please update your registration by selecting one of the options below. Registration is still open--sign up by May 16 and receive your race day swag in the mail. We hope you'll join us as heroes for kids in foster care! 

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races allow you to participate from anywhere, and you'll still receive your t-shirt and finisher medal. You simply run the distance on your own and report your results. We’ll send you additional instructions by email.

Thank you for choosing to donate your registration fee to support kids in foster care! Your generosity is greatly appreciated. We'll send you a donation receipt.

Celebrate National Foster Care Month by participating in the Sock & Undie Rundie!  

This 5K run/walk raises awareness of the tangible needs of kids in foster care. FosterAdopt Connect distributes food, clothing, hygiene supplies, and other necessities to foster and adoptive families through Sammy's Window. One of the biggest needs is new socks and underwear for foster youth, who often come into care with only the clothing they're wearing.  

Be an everyday superhero by signing up for this virtual race today. Then run or walk 3.1 miles from anywhere (e.g. your treadmill or favorite trail) between May 9 - May 16. Your race day swag will be sent directly to your home, including a t-shirt and finisher medal. 

And don’t forget a costume! We encourage you to dress up to help raise awareness: wear your most dashing superhero disguise or sport your undies (family-friendly!) and post a picture with #undierundiekc to participate in the costume contest. 

Proceeds benefit FosterAdopt Connect. Learn more at
