8th Annual Running for Greater Things – NEW DATE!
Thank you for making RGT7 last year a huge success! Pictures are available here and we are elated to share that RGT7 raised over $20,000 for adoption support.
We are very excited to announce that RGT8 will be taking place in October this year. Please save the date for October 21, 2017 to participate! We look forward to having you there and helping us bring children from all over the world into a loving forever family. In addition to a new date this year, we will also be adding more family fun for AFTER the 10k & 5k races. We have partnered with Fairfield Baptist Church to bring fun to the whole family with a 1k COLOR RUN and Fall Fest after the races have completed.
Our goal is to support adoptive and foster families. In the past 7 years, through RGT, many have played a role in helping families grow through adoption and get the support they need after they are home. We will offer a very special Couples Retreat at Pine Cove Family Camp, called “Connect” again for adoptive/foster parents. The retreat will be happening January 26-28, 2018 and it’s something you won’t want to miss! Stay tuned for details!
Since Hurricane Harvey struck, we are compelled to EXPAND our support in recovery efforts for those adoptive/foster families impacted. We hope to join efforts across our city/state as our sponsor support and your donations allow through this event. We will continue to use RGT funds to help with adoption expenses and post placement as well.
This event is so much more than just a fun run and free family entertainment. We desire to raise awareness and share opportunities with our community about adoption, foster, and orphan care needs close by and abroad. You can impact a child’s life and the lives of adoptive/foster families in our community for generations to come by getting involved. Together we can move mountains for children looking for forever homes. There are many other ways to show your compassion for children who need to be adopted than just running the race. If running isn’t something you enjoy, then we invite you to pray and consider donating your time or resources to this amazing cause.
