FAMILIES of FANA
Virtual 5K Run/WalkSeptember 4-11, 2021
We are a support network of over 400 families who have completed or are in the process of completing an adoption through FANA. FANA (the Spanish acronym for the Foundation for the Assistance of Abandoned Children), a private orphanage located in Bogotá, Colombia. We provide adoption and educational services to families who have completed or are in the process of adoption. In addition, we promote a social and cultural connection for families from Western New York, Ontario, and Pennsylvania to foster our children’s appreciation and understanding of Colombia. Our all-volunteer, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization raises funds for FANA in Bogotá and supports local children’s charities in Western New York.
5K Run/Walk Registration Fees:
$5.00 Child (12 and under)
Out of an abundance of caution, we will again hold our race virtually, and we have lowered the registration by $5. Racers may run the 5K anytime between 9/4-9/11. You have the option to time yourself and enter it manually on the itsyourrace.com website, or you may download the itsyourrace app, hit start when you begin and it will record your time when you achieve 3.1miles. You may run the regular route at Como Lake Park, or the route of your choice.
Results from the race are unofficial so we will not be issuing prizes for winners. We do have a 'Donate' button that is optional, and everyone who donates will be entered into a random drawing of Thank-You prizes. Prizes include:OMA Colombian coffee and $20-$50 gift certificates. Winners will be emailed notification and prizes mailed to their homes.
We thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time, as well as for your continued support of FANA.
