Walk A Mile In My Shoes is a free event created to bring greater awareness to the needs of Oklahoma's foster children, and the need for more foster families, adoptive families, and volunteers in the community. Participants will learn about the many ways they can help by PRAYING, VOLUNTEERING, FOSTERING, and ADOPTING.
Participants are encouraged to bring a suitcase to carry during the Walk, symbolic of the many moves and disruptions that children in foster care often experience. New/gently used suitcases can be donated after the Walk. New shoes of all sizes for children ages 0-18 may also be donated at the Walk.
Walk-A-Mile participation is free, but registration is required. Please register at the event website: http://www.walkamilefostercareevent.com/
***PRIZES!!! The top two fundraising teams from our national Foster Walk campaign will receive a digital subscription to Foster Focus Magazine for one year, the nation's only monthly magazine devoted to foster care. Check out the website for more info at www.fosterfocusmag.com/magazine.
