Thank you for visiting our team fundraising page for the 2018 Jordan's Furniture Walk/ Run for Adoption benefiting MARE!
We are ready to get movin' and help MARE find permanent adoptive homes for children and teens in foster care.
There are currently more than 9,600 children in the foster care system in Massachusetts. These children have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect and to prevent future harm. Some will be reunited with their birth parents; others will be adopted by family members or close friends. 850 of them have nowhere to go. These children face the prospect of growing up in foster care, eventually aging out of the system with no supports.
THESE CHILDREN AND TEENS NEED ADOPTIVE FAMILIES. They deserve forever homes.
Help us help MARE find homes for these children.
Thank you for your donations and for your help in spreading the word. Use these hashtags to promote the event on social media - #iwalkforadoption and #WalkRunAdopt.
