Walk for Kids – September 21, 2019

The Walk for Kids is a free, family-friendly event to raise awareness and show support of foster care families throughout western New York. Aside from the walk itself, the event features fun games and activities, food, and information on family-related services available in the area from a variety of different agencies.

The Walk for Kids took place on September 21, 2019, at Canalside in downtown Buffalo. Over 150 people participated.

Registration is now closed for this event.

The Walk for Kids was created by the staff at G.A. Family Services who recognized a need for a large-scale awareness event to pay tribute to foster families and the need for foster care. Involvement in foster care is not a requirement to attend the event; the event is open to everyone, especially families looking for a fun event for children to participate in.

Everyone who registers will receive a walk goodie bag. After the one-mile walk there will be an after party with a bounce house, face painting, activities and games, snacks and food trucks, a DJ, and more. The event is rain or shine.
