AdoptWalk

May 18, 2013


Beginning in 2004, NACAC launched AdoptWalk to raise awareness and raies funds funds for NACAC's work. AdoptWalk is open to everyone who would like to show their support for waiting children who dream of finding loving, permanent families. AdoptWalk is a 2.8-mile walk around Lake Nokomis, followed by a picnic with free food, beverages, and entertainment for all walkers at the Lake Nokomis Community Center.

Funds raised support NACAC’s work to provide services and information to families who have adopted children with special needs, educate adoption professionals, and work for system change. Participants can download an AdoptWalk Fact Sheet to share with sponsors, as well as a Tips for Raising Money factsheet to help them get started.

AdoptWalk is also designed to raise awareness about the need to find permanent families for all children.

Even if you can't make it person, we hope you can still make a donation to support NACAC.
