Kael Man 5K Run/Walk – Race to Make Adoption an Option

After much prayer and thought, we have decided not to host the Kael Man 5k this year. We want to thank every person who participated, volunteered, sponsored, supported and prayed for this race and our family. All of you have made an impact beyond what you could imagine. Thank you for the love and support of our family, friends, community and church family who helped us in every way possible, we could not have done this without you.  We look forward to the next chapter that God has in store for our family and yours.
