ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The weight of the world falls upon all parentless children. That's
why Children Awaiting Parents, a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding adoptive families for children in foster care, is
hosting its popular Family Walk on Saturday, September 26, 2009.
While the Family Walk is held in Rochester, NY at Ontario Beach Park, friends and
supporters of Children Awaiting Parents can participate in the Walk regardless of where
they live in the United States. Supporters simply go to www.ChildrenAwaitingParents.org,
and click on the Family Walk registration link.
Custom fundraising pages can be created and sent to friends and relatives. On September
26th, if participants do not live in Rochester, NY, they are invited to take a walk in their own
community to show their support for children that wait far too long in foster care for a family
of their own.
"Our Family Walk is a terrific, active way for people to show they care about foster children
that hope for adoption," stated Mark Soule, Executive Director. "We help bring together children and families from across the
United States. We are excited that new technology now allows people from across the United States to get involved in
generating support and funds for our small, highly-effective organization."
For those that do live in Rochester, please join Children Awaiting Parents at Ontario Beach Park for terrific family fun, including
delicious food and great entertainment. All funds raised through the Family Walk support Children Awaiting Parents efforts to
find a loving, adoptive family for every child in foster care.
