Friends Of Foster Children Walk Oct. 10

Once again, hundreds of “superheroes” donning capes and masks will converge upon John Prince Park on Saturday, Oct. 10 at 6:30 a.m. to take part in a charitable run.

Friends of Foster Children’s 2015 Superhero 5K & Fun Day will host superhero-themed runners to help make a difference in the lives of others.

What makes this run so special is that 100 percent of proceeds will go to help Friends of Foster Children’s programs that help the more than 1,800 children in Palm Beach County who have been abused so severely that they are placed in the care of another.

Onsite registration begins at 6 a.m. with ceremonies beginning at 7:15 a.m. The timed race begins at 7:30 a.m., followed by the Kid’s Dash at 8:15 a.m. and the walk at 8:30 a.m. There will be a pancake breakfast at 9 a.m.

Preregistration until Oct. 7 is $30 for adults. Onsite registration is $35 per adult. Pre-register now at Registrants will receive a free commemorative T-shirt and will have the opportunity to win prizes.

Friends of Foster Children is a nonprofit organization created to nurture the lives of foster children in Palm Beach County and transform their lives through services, support and education in order to overcome the effects of child abuse and neglect. Learn more at
