Looking for a fun activity and the opportunity to make a difference for children waiting for families? Agape Adoptions invites you to participate in our 2nd Annual Virtual 5K on Saturday, June 5th!
Registration costs and all fundraising efforts benefit Agape's Zoe!Fund, which offers adoption grants for waiting children on Agape Adoptions' advocacy list. By providing adoption grants, we can reduce barriers for families hoping to adopt and bring more children home to their forever families. While you maintain your social distance, the Virtual 5K allows you to change the lives of waiting children.
We run because they wait!

What is a virtual 5k?
A virtual 5k means you can participate from any location you choose! You can run or walk in your neighborhood, on a trail, on a track, even on a treadmill.
How do I track my distance and time?
We recommend downloading a free app such as MapMyRun or Nike Run Club.
Do I need to turn in my time?
Tracking your time is up to you – we won’t be collecting times but we do highly encourage either tagging us on social media with the hashtags #werunbecausetheywait and #agapevirtualrun or sending us your training and race day photos at firstname.lastname@example.org We would love to share the fun you’re having and good you’re doing from a distance!
What do I receive for my registration fee?
All participants will receive a custom race bib, and custom Agape Adoptions sunglasses (while supplies last) because this year's theme is "Their Future is Bright!"
