The event looks to raise funds and awareness for foster care, adoption and family preservation.
The Greater Delaware Valley branch of Bethany Christian Services is hosting “Bethany’s Walk and 5K for Children” in Mt. Laurel on Saturday, June 3, to raise funds and awareness for foster care, adoption and family preservation.
Bethany Christian Services is a global nonprofit organization that has been serving kids and families in the region since 1980.
Bethany Christian Services recruits, trains, and gives expert trauma-informed support to resource families to meet the needs of kids who have suffered tragic loss, violence or neglect.
Participants and advocates in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware are working together to achieve this year’s goal of raising $70,000 to benefit children in foster care, in need of adoption and help stabilize local families in crisis. The event will take place at Laurel Acres Park, 1045 S. Church St., in Mt. Laurel.
Check-in and on-site registration for the Walk and 5K Run opens at 7:45 a.m. Participants will be treated to complimentary snacks and drinks, and there will be free activities for kids, music and more.
According to Bethany Family Services, The Walk and 5K Run are open to the public and to those who are interested in supporting Bethany’s efforts for finding loving families for children in the Philadelphia area and around the world.
All funds received from the event will be put directly back into Bethany’s services to continue the essential work they do in the Greater Delaware Valley.
Sponsors of the walk include: Adoption Advocates — Jay H. Ginsburg, P.C., Chick-fil-A of Cheltenham, Good Stuff Thrift, Hope FM, ISC Mount Laurel, K-Love, Padden Cooper, LLC, Wedding Feature Films, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage — Scott Dirksen and Ronald Slagle and Word FM.
