On Saturday April 11, 2020, Council for Life hosted the first-ever Virtual Run for Life due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Participants supported Life by recording their run times over Easter Weekend. Prizes were awarded for Best Virtual Run times and Best Social Media posts. The Run benefited Buckner’s Waiting Texas Children adoption program. This program provides permanent "forever" homes for children in foster care, many of whom are older children and teenagers or in a sibling group. If they are never adopted, they will "age out" of the system with limited or no support or care. The proceeds from the Virtual Run for Life fully funded Buckner’s grant request for this ministry to needy children. Praise God for His provision!
