Race Preview: 2018 Run Foster 5K (Portland)

“Not everyone can be a foster parent, but anyone can help a foster child.” It may be a quote from a mattress advertisement, but it’s also truth. And this September you have the chance to help by running on a Saturday morning.

Run Foster 5K is two loops on an open course in Gabriel Park. With a two-hour time limit, runners and walkers of every speed are welcome for this event. So bring Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Jimmy, Tiny Tim, and Cousin Webster to enjoy this untimed adventure in the park. All participants will receive a t-shirt, plus finish line pictures will be available for free download so you can show off all the fun on social media for years to come.

There are a lot of race events in the Pacific Northwest. And there are a lot of worthy causes worth donating to. What I appreciate the most about this event is that 100% of proceeds are for charity and 100% of participants will make a difference by sharing an hour or two of their weekend. If you’re not free that weekend, still check out the website to learn how you can donate to the work taking place for kids in our community.
