2019 Run for Life attendees

(Dallas, TX): Due to COVID-19, Council for Life’s 2020 Run for Life 5K benefiting adoption on Easter Weekend has been canceled. But, you can still support adoption by participating as a Virtual Runner or Sponsor. 100% of Run proceeds will benefit Buckner Children and Family Services, a local organization committed to helping every child find hope and healing through family foster care, reunification with kin or the blessing of adoption. 

 

FAQs about a VIRTUAL RUN:
