MISSION~To Advocate and support the Orphan and the Adoptive family Hope 4.5K has a threefold purpose. AWARENESS: Bring awareness to the Orphan Crisis. We will do this by having 5K races locally and nationally. ADVOCATE: We desire to help bring home orphans into forever families. To speak for those who don’t have a voice. ASSIST: Adoptive families with financial assistance in the beginning process of their adoption. Funding will mostly come from the 5K races, and other support. Share this: 

Hope 4.5K was birthed out of our own financial struggles we experienced during our international adoption. We feel very strongly with 163 million orphans we CANNOT look away, only look to Ways to help bring an orphan from Hope to Home.  My husband David is a 5x Ironman, multiple marathoner, and has competed in several races…So we thought what could be better than putting these two passions together! James 1:27, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and blameless is this; To look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being pollute by the world.” By Advocating and Raising Awareness our mission is to Motivate and Move people into ACTION. September 1,2013 our family welcomed our son Beckham Luke Sintayehu HOME!!!
