Athletes For Adoption is a group of people committed to raising money on behalf of God’s Grace Adoption Ministry, Inc. As each person prepares and trains for their athletic event they will be inviting others to sponsor them by making a donation to God’s Grace Adoption Ministry, Inc. Read More.
God’s Grace Adoption Ministry, Inc. was established in 1998 as a non-profit organization dedicated to helping place orphaned children of the world into forever families. GGAM is not an adoption agency, but rather works in cooperation with the agency to assist with the family’s financial needs. GGAM seeks to help Christian families overcome the financial burden of adopting children. GGAM believes that the placement of children into Christian homes ministers to their physical needs, but more importantly, influences their lives eternally for the Kingdom of God. Visit GGAM.Org
We are a team of dedicated individuals with a heart for helping orphans. Through the years Athletes For Adoption team members have participated in many running and cycling events in Northern, California while raising money to support adoption. Team members completed their first half marathon back in 2008 and have been going strong every since!
Fundraising may begin as soon as you become a part of the Athletes For Adoption team. After joining the team, you may create a personal fundraising page that you can email to potential donors that allow them to donate online. The page will keep track of your progress and automatically send the money directly to GGAM as well as send a receipt directly to the donor.
Completing a half marathon run or walk is not as difficult as you might think. The most difficult part is not the event itself, but the time committed to training for it. This is a big commitment but remember, it’s only for 12 weeks of your life and what you achieve here may mean a lifetime difference to an orphaned child.
