Walk for the Waiting is to rally the community together to raise awareness, continue programs that support children in need, and fight to give them a bright future.
According to organizers, nearly 4,600 kids are waiting in foster care, 329 of those are waiting to be adopted and nearly 200 will age out of foster care this year, without a forever family. The Call, Immerse AR and Project Zero team up every year to raise money and advocate for all children across Arkansas who are waiting for more foster families to open their homes, waiting to be adopted families and waiting to be mentored.
