The Forever Home Run began in 2015 as a partnership between Lutheran Adoption Service and Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church to raise awareness and funding to support foster children waiting for their forever families. The event takes place at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church and includes two races: a 5k through beautiful Bloomfield Hills complete with fall foliage and a 1k Dress-Up Dash! The 5k is certified and professionally chip timed by Eastside Racing Company. You are welcome to wear your favorite costume for either the 5k or the Dress-Up Dash. There will also be children's activities including face paint, a bounce house, arts and crafts and community vendors. There will be prizes for overall winners as well as the top runner in each category.
There will also be prizes for the teams that bring the most runners, run the fastest cumulatively, and raise the most money for our kids.
In 2017, Lutheran Adoption Service facilitated 422 adoptions in large part thanks to the generosity of our participants and sponsors. Please join us in 2018 for a fun event that really does make a difference in the lives of children and their forever families. Your support truly matters to us, and we can’t wait to see you on October 13th!
