ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE!
Walk for Adoption Chicago is going virtual! The 2020 Walk for Adoption Chicago will be held the weekend of September 26th. Due to the circumstances going on with Covid-19, we don’t feel like we could safely put on an event that adoptive and foster families deserve. But, we still want to celebrate adoption this weekend.
We have organized a Family Walk and 5K that can be completed anytime during the weekend. You choose where you walk, run or even bike, You chose how long your walk is and who you invite to walk with you.
We will be posting a link to upload pictures and runners can post their times to the 5K website. We will be offering prizes throughout the weekend and for fastest running times.
Think about ways to show your support of adoption and foster care – decorate your front windows, chalk your sidewalk with inspirational drawings and sayings. Decorate your wagons or bikes as you complete your Family Walk.
We have also designed t-shirts that would be included with registration or for purchase. We are hoping that families and runners will wear their Walk for Adoption Chicago t-shirts as they walk or run.
Would you like to be a part of our “Family” video?? It only takes a couple of minutes to do and we would love to showcase your family in our video! You can email your video here. Sign up to lip sync one of the lyrics or have a fun dance party in your living room and record it. We want to see our Walk for Adoption Chicago families highlighted!! We are planning on compiling a video that features our Walk for Adoption Chicago supporters.
Please stay tuned as we continue to make plans to bring together the adoption community on Saturday, September 26th and 27th.
