Church Toolkit

Wellroot needs your help to recruit runners for the Founder’s Day 5K,  raise funds, and increase awareness for the needs of children and families at Wellroot.   

Included below are some tools for your congregation to help recruit runners/teams for the virtual race. One exciting feature of the 5K, is anyone who registers to run, walk, or fundraise will be a part of our 6-week program as we prepare the mind, body, and soul. Each week will have a different theme on child welfare and include awareness information, tips on talking to children about child welfare, fun challenges, meaningful devotions for adults and children, and a walking/training program. This starts March 20th and is an amazing opportunity for your congregation to learn more about those affected by the foster care system and the ministry you enable Wellroot to provide.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Alyson Ackerman at aackerman@wellroot.org or 404-327-5877.
