This exciting event, sponsored by Northern Colorado Christian Alliance for Orphans (NCCAFO), exists to bring communities and churches together to advocate for the needs of orphans in our community and around the world. The NCCAFO is a group of adoption agencies, orphan ministries, county agencies and church ministries uniting to advocate for orphans. Each organization will be raising funds for their specific project or need. In 2013, the race raised over $32,000!

Lace up those running shoes and make a difference one step at a time!
