Exciting News From RACE For The Orphans


From Special Reports

Thanks to your participation in the 7th Annual RACE for the Orphans 5K, we were able to raise $65,000 to help nine RACE Grant Recipient families bring their 10 children home.

This was the largest RACE in our history with more than 1,000 registered participants, and this is by far the largest amount of money ever raised.  All glory to God!

You are forever a part of these nine families’ stories, so THANK YOU again for helping change lives and helping us fulfill our mission of Raising Awareness, Compassion and Education about the needs of orphans in America and around the world.

A few items of interest:

• Our two photographers took more than 1,1000 pictures on RACE Day.  You can find links to all of these pictures on the 2019 RACE page of our website: racefortheorphans.org.

• If you or your company/organization/church is interested in being a Sponsor of the 2020 RACE, we will be sharing information about that on our website in October, or you can get more information by contacting us here.

• If you or someone you know is an adoptive or foster mom, find out more information here about the REST Retreat for Adoptive & Foster Moms that will be held September 27-28 at First Baptist Church of Newnan.  Registration begins on June 1st.

• Finally, if you took time to complete the RACE survey to share your feedback, we truly appreciate your input.  The RACE for the Orphans Board of Directors and volunteers are already planning and praying for the 8th Annual RACE that will be held on May 2, 2020.  We hope to see YOU there!

Thank you once again for supporting RACE for the Orphans and adoptive families!  And to God be all the glory!
