Friends and Family,
I'm running the Eugene Marathon in support of an awesome charity called A Family For Every Child, you can check out their description below. The fundraising goal is pretty modest, so I'm hoping to reach it or even go further.
Thanks for your support!
A Family For Every Child (AFFEC) is a national non-profit started by Christy Obie-Barrett and dozens of dedicated and passionate volunteers. In 2006, AFFEC was formed and developed into an organization focused on finding permanent and loving adoptive homes for all waiting children. Our intention is to assist special-needs/challenging-to-place foster children in finding their own Forever Families.
Donations made through the fundraising efforts of our Eugene Marathon/Half Marathon/5K team members will help us continue the important work we do here in Lane County and nationwide to support children currently in the foster care system - by connecting them with mentors, providing fun and encouraging activities, and helping children and parents through the matching and adoption process to create Forever Families.
Thank you for your support of children, families, and the AFFEC Eugene Marathon/Half Marathon/5K team members! Consider registering with our team today.
