Sock & Undie Rundie 5k

April 13, 2019

Calling all superheroes!

Break out your underoos because this is gonna be FUN!

FosterAdopt Connect’s Sock & Undie Rundie 5K will be held on April 13, 2019. This chip-timed 5K run/walk supports one of the biggest needs at FosterAdopt Connect’s Sammy’s Window clothing closet: new socks and underwear for foster youth.

Be an everyday superhero by donating new socks and undies as part of your registration fee. Then come to the 5K sporting your undies any way you want - on the inside, on the outside, or even by all themselves (modesty please, this is a pet and family-friendly event)! Longjohns and all superhero costumes are welcome too!
