Hosted by The Foundling’s Junior Board, our 2nd Annual Walk-a-Thon allows you to join a community of Foundling supporters as we walk to raise funds for our vital programs.
Proceeds from the walk-a-thon directly support programs that allow the children, adults, and families we serve to overcome their challenges – including job instability, academic struggles, and persistent mental health needs. Our evidence-based and research-backed programs keep families together, prevent child abuse and neglect, help individuals with developmental disabilities live their best lives, and provide academic support for young people.
Our fundraising goal is to raise $65,000 by walking at least 5 kilometers (6,250 steps) on Saturday, September 24. We’ve created a fundraising platform that allows you to build your own personal fundraising page where your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues can make online donations.
