This run is now a virtual event and run supports one of the biggest needs at FosterAdopt Connect’s Sammy’s Window clothing closet: new socks and underwear for kids in foster care. Be an everyday superhero by participating in this event, raising money for the kids, and showing your support online through your participation in your event day social media campaign!
- 3,200 SWMO kids are in foster care. The average foster kid is only 8 years old and has already experienced significant abuse and neglect.
- On average, foster children move to a new home every 90 days.
- 43% of foster children will be homeless in their lifetime.
