Welcome to the fundraising page of the 2021 AFFEC Eugene Marathon/Half Marathon/5K team members!
The 2021 Eugene Marathon is currently slated to happen April 23 - 25. If it must be cancelled again due to health restrictions, it will be transferring to a Virtual Run, where participants can still run their race, but on their own path.
We hope you will join us again this year and help support A Family for Every Child through the Eugene Marathon's Run for a Reason program! Join our team, set a fundraising goal, and spread the word to your friends and family! They donate, you meet your goal, and get to run your race for free!
If you had started fundraising in 2020, you still are a part of our team! Our campaign has remained and all places were kept. Help us hit our goal!
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.
