Adoptions From The Heart’s 7th Annual Find Her Footing 5K Walk, Run and Kids Dash

The greater Philadelphia area nonprofit adoption agency hosts a 5K in support of birth parents.

Bala Cynwyd, PA, January 25, 2019 --( Adoptions From The Heart (AFTH), a nonprofit open adoption agency is holding its annual Find Her Footing 5K Walk, Run and Kids Dash on Sunday April 28, 2019 starting at 8:30 am. For 2019 the family-friendly event will take place at the historic West Laurel Hill in Bala Cynwyd, PA. The adoption agency is proud to announce that Orangetheory Fitness Ardmore, Penn Medicine, Republic Bank and Law Offices of Deborah E. Spivack will serve as a sponsors for this year’s 5K fundraiser.

Runners and walkers of all levels are welcome to participate in a 3.1-mile race course winding through the grounds of West Laurel Hill. Along with the regular 5K, AFTH is bringing back its popular Kids Dash for children ages 3 to 10 years old. After the race participants can have some fun at the superhero themed photo booth. The superhero theme is an homage to Superman Clark Kent, a fellow adoptee.

“This race is an annual tradition for many, and we love how so many people come out every year to support adoption,” said Maxine Chalker, Founder/ CEO of Adoptions From The Heart. “We are thrilled to have the support of the community, so we can help those in greatest need.”

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Expecting and Birth Parent Support Fund. There are expecting and birth parents who work multiple jobs and still struggle to afford to pay their electric bill or buy groceries. Many expecting and birth parents face financial hurdles while trying to find their footing. Last year the Find Her Footing 5K Walk, Run and Kids Dash raised approximately $6,500 for the fund.

AFTH hopes to see some new runners/walkers along with our attendees from last year at the 2019 5K. Water bottles and refreshments including samples from Nothing Bundt Cakes of Wynnewood, PA, along with bagels from The Original Bagel bakery in Broomall, PA will be available for all participants. KIND Snacks is also providing 200 protein bars and 50 KIND kids bars.

Aside from registration attendees and 5K watchers can contribute to the fund by purchasing raffle tickets. The raffle selections will be placed next to the registration table. Raffle prizes include passes to Flyers Skate Zone, Xfinity Live!, Platoon Fitness personal training sessions and more. Those who cannot be physically present at this event can still show their support by donating to our "No Sweat" club.
