Foster 5K + Family Day

Kiwanis Park • 101 E Baseline Road TempeAZ  85283 Organized by StartLine Sports LLC

About this event

Join a community on a mission to help kids

The need it great with over 9,700 children in Foster Care in Arizona. We understand not everyone is able to foster or adopt, but we can all play a part in helping children and families in need. That’s why we’re personally inviting you to join us for an amazing day of fun, fitness, and community.

Foster Care 5K+Family Day

on Sunday, November 24, 2024

At Kiwanis Park in Tempe



You can race, run, walk, or participate virtually. Invite friends to join you on a team or fly solo. We welcome participants of all ages and abilities. Every dollar raised serves children, young people, and families whose lives have been impacted by foster care in Arizona. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children in need.

The Arizona KIDS Consortium is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of over 20+ licensing agencies contracted with the Department of Child Safety to help prospective foster and adoptive parents to become licensed to care for vulnerable children.

Every day, we are helping:

  • Children in need of a safe, peaceful, and loving home
  • Adoptive and foster families in need of resources and advice
  • Systems in need of advocacy and accountability
