One Step Closer to Home 5K Fun Run/Walk

Bring your family or a friend and join us on Saturday, June 25 at 7:30 a.m. for One Step Closer to Home 5K Fun Run/Walk to raise awareness for LSSI's Therapeutic Foster Care Program in Rockford and the need for foster parents within our community.

The One Step Closer to Home 5K Fun Run/Walk is a family-friendly event that will take place at Rock Valley Community College. Walkers and runners of all abilities are welcome! Food trucks will be available, and all participants will receive a swag bag and refreshments at the finish line.

Funds raised will help continue the vital work of LSSI's Rockford Therapeutic Foster Care Program and will be used to create a scholarship fund. This scholarship will create opportunities that a child in foster care might not otherwise have, such as summer camp and funds for continued education.

Registration is $20 for each adult, and children under 12 are free with a registered adult. A virtual option, where you can run on your own, is available. The first 100 people to register for the in-person event will receive a t-shirt. Proceeds benefit Rockford's Therapeutic Foster Care Program.

For more information, contact or call 815.969.8836 ext. 4947.
