Thank you to everyone who participated and became a fundraiser! This was our biggest race yet. We had a little over 200 runners total and we exceeded our fundraising goals! The fundraising page will be open for a couple of more weeks, so spread the webpage to friends and family.
We want to extend a huge THANK YOU to our Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors! Without your help, this race would not be possible. Here's to an even bigger Ima's 5K in 2017!
3rd Annual Ima's Home 5K Run & Kids 1K
Ima's Home for Children is an orphanage in The Philippines.
(Ima’s Home for Children is a 501c3 tax exempt, non-profit organization)
Finding Help for 400,000 Street Children
“For some families in the Philippines, poverty is so severe that they feel it is easier to just leave their children on the
streets rather than watch them starve to death in their homes. There are families who have so many children that
the oldest sibling (seven or eight years of age) is forced to the streets to beg for the rest of the family. Some are the
illegitimate children of young mothers who were either abandoned by their families or are street-children themselves.
There is also the cruel and endless cycle of other young children who are violated, victimized, and exploited while
growing up in the streets, only to give birth and perpetuate the next generation of street children. It is a seemingly
endless cycle of hopelessness. There are approximately 400,000 street children in the city of Manila alone and
hundreds more throughout the rest of the country, but Ima’s Home for Children promises to be an oasis of hope
for these hurting and lonely children. As you read this, ask God what you can do to be a part of this great mission.”
- Pastor Jim Kilgore
Ima’s Home For Children opened in the summer of 2013 after several years of dreams and hard work. Currently,
there are 35+ children in the orphanage with many more ready to be rescued. Proceeds from the Ima's Home 5K Run
are used to fund the daily operation which includes food, shelter, clothing, education, attendants and
management for these precious children.
We thank you for participating in this incredible endeavor of helping to save the lives of these young children. We feel there
is no greater calling than to help the helpless children of this world.
