Date: 4/30/2020

Time: 11:59 pm

In its first-ever “Lift the Wait ROC,” Children Awaiting Parents/Donald J. Corbett Adoption Agency (CAP/Corbett) is working with local gyms, fitness and wellness studios to help raise awareness about these children during May (National Foster Care Month), and to help support the work of CAP/Corbett.

“Our longtime slogan ‘Lift the Wait’ indicates the need for forever, adoptive families for children who wait in foster care the longest,” said CAP/Corbett Executive Director Lauri McKnight. “We are so thankful to the gyms, wellness studios and retail outlets who have chosen to participate in 'Lift the Wait ROC,' and invite the community to join an event of their choice to raise funds to help find forever families for these children."
