Coming up on August 25, xHope Missions is hosting a 5K run/walk fundraiser for foster families. The event will be held at 8280 Longleaf Drive, in Elk Grove, behind the Century movie theater on Big Horn Blvd.
xHope was started by Ric and Wendi Cross. Their passion for helping kids in Africa led them to creating the non profit and helping foster kids locally as well. They have seen first hand the difficult situations that foster kids and orphans go through. The Elk Grove area is home to a number of children in foster care.
The Caring For Kids Run/Walk is a 5K race event and Kids Fun Run, organized by xHope Inc, an Elk Grove based non-profit. xHope’s specific focus is to shine a light on community groups that focus on “at-risk” youth, foster care and adoptive services within Elk Grove and the Greater Sacramento region. Our event is designed to raise monies and awareness for xHope and our network of partner organizations that provide needed resources, programs and support for children throughout our community and abroad.
The Caring for Kids Run/Walk will encompass categories to accommodate all levels of runners and walkers, including a Kid’s Fun Run. The event will be staged and timed to allow more serious runners to achieve new PR’s.
