We are seeking agencies, organizations, and individuals who would be willing to support our youth programs by being one of our sponsors for the annual Frosty 5K. The Frosty 5K put on by FamilyCore (330 SW Washington Street, Peoria, IL 61602 phone 309-676-2400) will be held this year on Saturday, January 27th, 2018 at the Peoria riverfront. The race starts in front of Running Central at 9 am.
When the Frosty 5K started in 1999 the money being raised went to a special fund to buy hats, gloves, and coats for the children and youth that we serve. Since then the money being raised has expanded to now go towards the various program at FamilyCore that serve our area children and youth. That includes fees for activities for foster children, activities for children in Peoria School district who are in our respite program (for youth who are suspended at school), and resources for children who are in counseling with us in our counseling program. These are just some of the ways that we apply these funds that we raise to benefit the youth.
