Runner’s Fundraising

We are asking that each runner/walker commit to raising funds.  Imagine the impact you will make, as all donations will go toward caring for orphaned and vulnerable children across the world.  First comes choosing an organization to partner with, next customize your own personal page, then share the page with everyone and track all of your donations through the same page.



Registration is Closed



Orphan Expo

Participating charities have information booths and activities to create awareness of the needs of orphans and the work they are doing to help the children they serve.
