Join us for the 12th Annual Jordan’s Furniture Walk/Run for Adoption! This 5K event raises money for the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE), a nonprofit that finds adoptive homes for children in foster care.
Following the success of last year’s virtual event, we’re excited to be hosting the 5K virtually again this year. We want all participants to feel safe while still having fun and being a part of something great. Distance can't stop us from making a difference!
So join us from wherever you are, whenever you can, to walk and run for adoption between May 1st and May 16th. You can complete your 5K at any time during the two weeks leading up to the 16th, whether you're on a treadmill, on a trail, or in your neighborhood. With new fundraising incentives and raffle prizes, there are lots of ways for you to get creative and have fun with this year’s event!
Since many of our dedicated walkers and runners may not be familiar with GiveLively, we’re here to give you step-by-step instructions on how to get registered for this year’s event.
If you have questions about registration, email Danielle Conti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you register for the event, start your own fundraiser to help us reach this year's goal of $110,000. You can fundraise as an individual, join a team, or even start a team of your own! Then, once you've created your fundraiser, you can start raising money by sharing it with friends and family on social media, over email, and via text.
This year, we’ll be giving away exciting prizes as you fundraise and raise awareness for adoption from foster care. Keep this in mind as you create your fundraising goals, challenge your team, and help us reach $110,000!
For registrants who raise the following amounts, your name will be entered into a raffle to win fun and exciting prizes, gift certificates, and goodies at each of the following levels:
This year’s raffle prizes include a $1,000 gift certificate to our premier sponsor, Jordan’s Furniture (for those who raise over $1,000)!
We'd also like to thank our generous corporate sponsors for supporting this year's event!
