RUN FOR ONE- ROCHESTER, NEW YORK
The ONETrack International Run for ONE Virtual Race is a 5k Virtual Race that will be held from August 2nd to August 8th! ONETrack International promotes proper orphan-care solutions by encouraging our Transition to Home approach to family reunification. We work to uphold, introduce and train globally-recognized international laws and standards that protect an orphaned child’s rights to be raised by biological relatives, or other suitable providers, within their communities of birth in situations where it is practical and appropriate. We advocate and practice these principles at both the community and global levels by supporting and advising organizations that work with parentless and vulnerable children around the world. More information can be found at http://onetrackinternational.org/ Rise Up Rochester, Incorporated is a nonprofit that empowers the community to establish and maintain a nonviolent culture and provides support to crime victims and their families. Since 2008, countless families that have had their lives turned upside down by homicide have received needed support through Rise Up Rochester, Incorporated programs like its monthly Support Group and annual Service of Remembrance. More information can be found at https://www.riseuprochester.net/ Proceeds from our 5K Fun - Run will be split between Rise Up Rochester and ONETrack International. ONETrack will provide for orphaned children by removing them from their overcrowded and under-resourced orphanages and placing them in the households of biological family members (and providing for all their education, health needs and caretaker support) and in a conflict context, we will be providing for separated children by keeping the remaining family members together and removing them from collective institutions (such as refugee camps) to private homes. Run with your family and friends from the comfort of your own home or within your own neighborhood (while following the CDC's recommendations for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19). Remember to use any running app to track your distance and time and then, upload a screenshot of your results during registration! Deadline for submissions is August 8th!
