Saturday, October 17th, Our Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Bloomfield Hills
The Forever Home Run began in 2015 as a partnership between Lutheran Adoption Service and Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church to raise awareness and funding to support foster children waiting for their forever families. The event takes place at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church and includes two races: a 5k through beautiful Bloomfield Hills complete with fall foliage and a 1k Dress-Up Dash! The 5k is certified and professionally chip timed by Eastside Racing Company. You are welcome to wear your favorite costume for either the 5k or the Dress-Up Dash. There will be prizes for overall winners as well as the top runner in each category.
Over 400 children are adopted through Lutheran Adoption Service annually thanks to the support of our generous Forever Home Run sponsors! COVID-19 has created an even more significant need to support our adoptive families and the growing needs of nearly 13,000 foster children in Michigan. Your support brings health, hope and wholeness to at-risk youth who need a forever home. Your support truly matters to us, and we can’t wait to see you on October 17th!
As a result of Covid-19, we are offering both an in person 5k as well as a virtual 5k.
Live 5k changes include:
A limited field of 100 participants (unless state mandates allows for more).
We will have a 'rolling start' which means the start line will be open for 10 minutes for folks to start in a safe manner.
Virtual 5k includes:
Bib, shirt, and finisher medal. Virtual 5k participants do a 5k on their own, post their result to the leaderboard but are not eligible for any age group award.
