Supporting the Wake Tech Foundation
Fit & Able invites you to be part of the 4th running of Fostering Footsteps for Bright Futures to support the Wake Tech Foundation’s Fostering Bright Futures program. BUT NOW it has come home with a brand new course on a Wake Tech campus. Race either a 3 Mile, 5 Mile, or Fun Run race around a beautiful campus and support a great cause. The 5 Mile race includes the Double Deck Challenge!

The Fostering Bright Futures (FBF) program is a student success program that addresses the overwhelming need for a comprehensive support structure to assist our community’s foster youth in making the transition from Wake County’s foster care program to independent young adulthood.

The objective of the FBF program is to eliminate barriers that would typically derail foster youth from meeting educational and life goals. By providing financial, academic, and social support, the FBF program helps these young men and women learn the skills they need to live as independent adults and get the education needed to secure gainful and meaningful employment. The FBF program is made possible by a network of community partners, including Dress for Success, Interfaith Food Shuttle, Kramden Institute, The Green Chair Project, United Way of the Greater Triangle, Wake County Humans Services, and Wheels 4 Hope.

So, pick your distance – Fun Run, 3 Mile, or 5 Mile – then invite your friends and family to race with you!

Invite your friends and family to run together!
Fostering Footsteps for Bright Futures is part of Fit & Able’s Free-for-All Race Series.
