Making a Difference One Step At a Time – Run For Orphans

On Saturday, May 11, 2013, over 500 runners and walkers (including plenty of kids and strollers) lined up at the starting line to make a difference for orphans locally and globally.

The third annual Run/Walk For Orphans, sponsored by the Northern Colorado Christian Alliance for Orphans, raised money for participating partners and their projects including the orphan ministries of area churches including Timberline Church, local adoption agencies, and several independent orphan ministries in Northern Colorado. The money will go toward specific projects and needs including raising awareness, education for orphans overseas, financial support for missionaries working with orphans in other countries, friendship support for women facing unplanned pregnancies, financial assistance for adopting families, and provide monthly training for foster and adoptive families.

While post-race awards celebrated the achievements of the top male and female finishers in each age category, everyone who participated deserves a pat on the back for helping such an important cause. Thanks also to the many sponsors (see www.runfororphansrace.org/sponsors) who made this year’s event possible.
