The Iowa Foster and Adoptive Parents Association and the Friends of Children in Foster Care Program are excited to join together on this fundraising venture.
This family-friendly event will take place the morning of Saturday, May 7, 2011. The Stride for Foster Care event will include a 3.2-mile walk around beautiful Blue Heron Lake in Raccoon River Park in West Des Moines and will end with free pizza and activities for everyone.
Help Iowa's children in foster care - Create your own fundraising page and collect
pledges for Stride for Foster Care. Funds raised during the campaign will be used
to provide support for Iowa's children in foster care and their foster families.
At any given time, there are approximately 5,000 Iowa children in foster care. To help only half
of the 5,000 foster children in Iowa each year, it would cost 500,000. We Need Your Help!!!
