5K Run/Walk

11:00AM EDT


Race start: 11:00 AM

Please join us on Sunday, May 1, 2022, at Scioto Audubon Metro Park for the inaugural America's Next Motivator! 5K to raise awareness about foster care and funds to support our non-profit which is on a mission to motivate all 447,000 youth in the foster care system and their families.

Running can assist in the relationship-building process between youth and parents and can be part of an unconditional commitment to a child. We are creating America's Next Motivator! 5K to encourage running as a lifestyle activity for youth and families in the foster care system.
