    Join the National Foster Parent Association Conference Attendees by taking part in Walk Me Home to the place I belong June 25th, 2015 at the Sheraton Waterfront, Norfolk, Virginia.

    This is a 5K walk, however you are free to walk a shorter distance if you choose. To join just click on the join button and pay $20 to register yourself as a supporter, this includes a special Walk Me Home tee shirt to be given out the day of the walk.

    We are asking each person who registers to create their own fundraising page and invite friends and relatives to donate to it. We are asking each person to set a goal of $100 for your page. As you register you will be given the opportunity to create or join an existing team.

    Proceeds from this walk will go to support the National Foster Parent Association’s efforts to support and advocate for parents and children all across the US.

    Registration with shirt size must be received by June 7th in order to guarantee the special tee shirt. Registrations received after June 7th will still receive the regular Walk Me Home tee shirt.

    Walk Me Home…to the place I belong is the signature fund-raising and awareness event for foster care in America. We know not everyone can be a foster or adoptive parent, but Walk Me Home is a great way to support the over 400,000 children in foster care and the more than 100,000 children available for adoption.
