Project Zero Hosts a Run to Help Foster Kids

News

Project Zero helps foster children find permanent homes, and on Saturday morning, April 27, the nonprofit hosted a 5K and 8K to support their cause.

Runners participated to raise awareness and money to make Project Zero’s goal possible.

The organization states that about one-fourth of all of the children and teens in foster care in the United States are still waiting to be adopted. 

Outreach Coordinator Tiphanie Gurwell said, “it’s exciting because we really want people to understand the need for adoption out of foster care and this is just an amazing event that we get to do.” 

Project Zero also holds connection events that bring “waiting families” and “waiting children” together in Northwest Arkansas.
