The Run for Independence 5K will start on Saturday, October 19, at 9 a.m. at the UK Commonwealth Stadium. The race is being organized to raise awareness for the obstacles youth face when they age out of foster care. Proceeds will go toward the costs they incur when they move out on their own and second-chance scholarships for youth who want to go back to college.
Fostering Goodwill supports children who age out of the foster-care system through one-on-one mentoring and social-services assistance. Its programs include distributing household items to youth—whether for a college dorm room or their own apartments, donating baby-care items for new mothers, and providing second-chance scholarships for young adults with delinquent postsecondary accounts.
