Foster Care Hall of Fame



A Long Way Home

Fifteen-year old Felicia Robinson is planning a run — not a marathon as we know it, but something more profound:  a run from Kamloops to Vancouver, more than 200 miles.

Felicia has grown up in foster care and designed the route “to correspond with all the places she has lived growing up in foster homes.”  She’s not running for herself, though; she’s running to raise money for other foster youth.  She hopes to raise $12,000 so that parentless children in Canada and as far away as Africa and Peru can enjoy after-school sports.

Felicia’s work is a heartwarming example of the difference that one person can make.

For the children,

Conna
