4KIDS is so thankful for Spanish River Church and the River Run 5K! Because of this church and this great event 4KIDS is able to be there for modern-day orphans. When a child is removed from their home because of abuse or neglect, 4KIDS is there to make sure they have a loving foster family, equipped to care for them. Because of the River Run 5K, more foster families are able to be recruited, licensed, and trained. Thank you Spanish River Church for providing hope to children in crisis!

The annual River Run has been such a blessing to Place of Hope and our many children. This event and its supporters have literally helped pave the road for the launch and operation of our Rinker Campus in Boca Raton. Lives are being saved daily.
