America World Adoption Association is celebrating its 20th Anniversary of serving adoptive families and we are looking forward to our next 20 years. Serving orphans in 10 countries throughout the world, America World desire is to 'build Christian families according to God’s design of adoption'. The passion behind our mission is to see every adoptable orphan to be placed in a Christian home.
America World is currently building 6 charity running teams (Team America World) for several running events throughout 2015. To start off our season, we are partnering with Chosen Marathon who "host sporting events that financially impact orphans & adoptive families, and raises awareness of the 165 million orphans worldwide.”
Chosen’s purpose is to help children come into families, provide direct orphan care to those who are not adopted, and mobilize people to respond to the orphan crisis. America World supports this mission and we invite you to run with us whether you prefer a short social run, or a long distance run.
Team America World’s goal is to raise the funds necessary to continue our work of placing children from around the world into adoptive families and to equip individuals to become advocates for orphan care initiatives.
Joining our charity race team gives you the opportunity to share God’s promise to the least of these: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.
