Dear Friends of Let It Be Us,
There is an urgency to our work right now in Illinois and your participation at our June 11 5K Walk/Run & Festival is one way for you to help the Let It Be Us mission of adoption from foster care. Each time we host an event it brings more knowledge to our community, and beyond, about the need for foster and adoptive families. With residential housing starting to take a new direction, such as closing, there is an extreme need for foster homes in Illinois right now.
We are fortunate to be having some children from our partner group homes attend our event. This will be a fun and a new kind of day for them because they’ll spend a day just being kids!
This 5K Run/Walk will be led not only by the Ride For 3 Reasons team, but by the new WGN Sportscaster, Laura Magiera. This is also a chance to visit some of the most beautifully protected land in Illinois.
Afterwards we’re hosting a free Festival – the only cost will be food and drinks which will be provided by Iron Horse BBQ and Pure Organic Juicery. There will be a DJ, bouncy castles, face painters, a balloonist, and games for little kids.
Please consider attending and having a great time while learning more about the work of Let It Be Us! You can register here!
Thank you, as always, for your support.
