The Caring For Kids Run/Walk is a 5K race event and Kids Fun Run, organized by xHope Inc, an Elk Grove based non-profit. xHope’s specific focus is to shine a light on community groups that focus on “at-risk” youth, foster care and adoptive services within Elk Grove and the Greater Sacramento region. Our event is designed to raise monies and awareness for xHope and our network of partner organizations that provide needed resources, programs and support for children throughout our community and abroad.

The Caring for Kids Run/Walk will encompass categories to accommodate all levels of runners and walkers, including a Kid’s Fun Run. The event will be staged and timed to allow more serious runners to achieve new PR’s. We hope you can join us and make 2018 our best year yet!
