Home Run

April 9 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

 

There are hundreds of children in the Lubbock area receiving services from Children’s Protective Services (CPS). Some of these children can remain with family members, but many others are placed in foster homes. The HOME RUN is an event that HONORS these children who have been abused and/or neglected. This event shows these children that there are people who care! The HOME RUN also brings awareness of the need for foster homes in the Lubbock area. There continues to be a critical shortage of foster homes in the Lubbock area. Child Placing Agencies are participating in this event so you can obtain information about how to become a foster parent! Charities that focus on children involved with CPS are also participating so you can learn about other ways you can help these children!

The HOME RUN includes a fun run, fun family activities, art activities and food trucks!
Foster*A*Life, the host of this event, provides services and opportunities for children involved with CPS in Lubbock County as well as 17 surrounding counties.
Registration begins at 8:00 AM and the fun run begins at 9:00 AM. The event ends at NOON! This is a 4k route if you run the route twice!
