BENEFITING: WIDE HORIZONS FUND FOR CHILDREN
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
This summer I will be taking on a challenge. Not only am I running the tough mudder, but I am trying to raise $5,000 for an organization that hits really close to home. Wide Horizons for Children helps disadvantaged children who are in orphanages find permanent homes and families. This organization is the reason I have the most amazing family and life I could ever imagine. I will be running for those who aren't as fortunate as I was 17 years ago when my mom found Wide Horizons and they found me. Although the country I was adopted from has closed its doors to any more adoptions, there are still so many countries out there that haven't. Wide Horizon's not only helps with adoptions, but it helps people sponsor children so that the children can get food, medical care and a bright future. Children who age out of the orphanages with no jobs usually end up on the street and many fall victim to drugs and human trafficking. I am running for these children. I hope that I can reach my goal by June 18th and I hope you can help. If you have any questions about this organization or want to know more please feel free to message me. "There are no unwanted children, just unfound families". I really hope that I can do my part to bring these children a little closer to home.
