Adoptwalk 2016: Extreme Obstacle Edition will feature two divisions with more than 25 obstacles for ALL levels of fitness to enjoy!
Extreme Race: For competitive athletes, including first responders, armed forces and anyone interested in challenging their body, mind, and spirit! We are looking for 20 teams of up to six participants to compete for the fastest times. If your motto is "Pain is Temporary", this race is for you!
Child/Youth and Family Race: Will feature obstacles that are just the right size for children and families to conquer together! Included in the fun will be prizes for the best superhero costumes, and best superpowers displayed! As well, join us during and after the races for a BBQ and special celebration with families who have finalized their adoptions this year!
If you care about children and youth in the child welfare system, and those in need of homes internationally, please consider supporting the Adoption Council of Canada's work. Without permanent families, the children in care of our provincial/territorial foster care system will age out of that system without the support, connections and advocates all of us need. Many will go on to homelessness, incarceration or poverty. Some take their own lives.
