Adoption STAR and Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village (BNHV) are co-sponsoring the 4th Annual 5K Run in the Country on Saturday, September 26th, 2015 starting at 9am. The race is part of the Fabulous 5k Race Series and is a USATF certified course.
In addition to the race, there will be a Kid’s Fun Run on the grounds starting at 10am, followed by a post-race celebration at BNHV where music, food, beer and water will be provided. All proceeds will be split evenly between Adoption STAR and BNHV.
As two Western New York-based non-profit (501c3) organizations, Adoption STAR and BNHV are proud to work cooperatively to make this race a success. As a child welfare organization, Adoption STAR takes pride in its efforts to create “forever families” for children in need of a home, and the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village strives, “to engage a diverse audience in the exploration of history and its influence on present-day life in the Niagara Frontier.”
While our organizations undoubtedly have two different missions, we’re excited about this collaboration and united in our commitment to make the race a fun, family-friendly event.
