Race Description

It's A Child's Life Foundation is proud to present the 4th Annual A Mile in Their Shoes walk for foster care. The purpose of the walk to 1) bring awareness of the impact foster care can have on a child 2) partner with local agencies to educate families who are considering foster care 3) provide luggage and other needed items to DHS in order to help children and families transition into foster care.

Participants will enter the world of the foster child. Walkers will take luggage (see strategy below) with them on the course as they learn statistics of what impacts a child in foster care and/or times out of the system. This is a family friendly event.  Coffee and donuts will be provided for participants.  Our first group of those who register will receive a free event t-shirt compliments one of our favorite sponsors Hunter Supertechs.

 

We are asking you to help us stockpile Pontotoc County OKDHS with critical need items:

1.  New luggage (large, medium, and small suitcases), Armour Guard duffel bags, duffel bags, and carry-on sized bags. 

2. Socks and underwear

3. Diapers and Wipes (Size 4 & 5 diapers specifically requested)
