We are excited to be hosting our 2nd Annual Youth Obstacle Course Race Event: DEFEND. Athletes for Adoption is a team that supports God’s Grace Adoption Ministry by raising funds to help children come home to their Forever Families. This summer, kids will have the opportunity to make a difference for kids, just like them, who are in need of a family. Please join with us and help make a dream of a family a reality for kids all around the world. Don’t miss kids DEFENDing the Fatherless!
One hundred percent of all proceeds from the race will go towards the adoption of children worldwide.
Each participant can also raise additional funds for AFA by setting up a profile page. This will allow kids to invite friends and family to join them in DEFENDing the Fatherless by sponsoring them for their race. Donations can be made directly on their profile page.
Toddler Obstacle Course Race: Ages 1-3
Youth Obstacle Course Race: Ages 4-18
Parents are encouraged to participate in helping their children throughout the course.
Pancake Breakfast:AFA will be hosting a pancake breakfast during the DEFEND event from 8:30am-11:00am. The pancake breakfast is included with race registration, but additional tickets can be purchased for $5.
