Thriving Kids, Thriving Moms: Embracing Your Child's Identity

Join us this fall as we discover who our kids are and what makes them tick. How can we as moms develop the unique personalities of our kids as we seek to communicate and connect with them? We will learn practical tools to help our kids deal with their strong emotions and work through their temper tantrums, teaching them the languages of love and apology. 

Each week, we will hear from a variety of speakers who will address topics relevant to us as moms, followed by a time of great small group discussion. 

Free, preregistered childcare for birth through age 7 is included. 

Thursday mornings

Lace Up
Aug 07, 2018

Do you have a love for children? Your own children, foster children, global orphans? If so this family fun Run/Walk, held the first Saturday in November, is for you!

Join us Saturday, November 3, at 10am at Lake Country Lutheran High School, Hartland!

Our fundraising efforts will be directed to two causes. Locally, we will support the Royal Family Kids Camp of Waukesha County which is a summer camp for children in the foster care system who have been abused, neglected and abandoned. Globally, we are partnering with Orphan Outreach to support the Jelgava City Orphanage in Jelgava, Latvia. This includes humanitarian aid, life skills training, mentoring, employment help and Bible studies.

This is one of the few timed 5K cross country runs in the area on a WIAA State Certified Course . It starts off on the soccer field at Lake Country Lutheran High School & works its way across the street into a beautiful wooded trail with the finish line back on Lake Country Lutheran's grounds. During the post-race celebration awards will be given for the top runners by gender and age groups.  A new timing system will be used this year to simplify & speed up our race results and respective award ceremony. 

If not interested in running, you can also do a delayed start after the runners and walk the same 5K course or take a 1 Mile Family Fun Walk around the pond on the grounds of Lake Country Lutheran.  In addition we also have a 1 mile Fun Run for any children under the age of 10, no timing, but just for fun after the 5K Run.  

After the race, join us indoors in the Great Hall at the school for a celebration complete with food, drinks, music, kids’ activities, adoption and foster care information, race results and awards.

Please "Like" us on Facebook & watch for more race day updates.  If you can share our Facebook updates & help us spread the word as well, we would be so grateful.  We are also on Twitter - @laceup4orphans!
 
If you are unable to attend but would still like to support this Mission: Hope annual fundraiser, register today to be a virtual runner & make a financial donation!  All donations are greatly appreciated.
 
Do you or someone you know own a business and that they might be interested in being a business sponsor?  If so, please email  us for sponsor information.
