And when you’re done with this stroller- and dog-friendly run, relax and enjoy the post race festivities. Read more about the Foster C4C Fun Run below.

Tell us about Foster C4C Fun Run. What, when and where is it? The Foster C4C Fun Run and Walk is the first event of the year to support UW Foster MBA Program’s Challenge for Charity efforts. 100% of the proceeds benefit Special Olympics of WA, Boys & Girls Clubs of King County, and University District Food Bank. It helps extend the Foster brand to our community and inspires future business leaders toward a lifelong commitment to social responsibility. The run is on Saturday, October 11th on the UW Campus behind Paccar Hall. The race starts at 9:00am and registration opens at 8:00am.

What can participants expect to see and do? Participants can expect to see a full tour of the University of Washington campus as they participate in the race and will see many racers sporting their Husky purple and gold pride! The pre- and post-race festivities take place in the field directly behind Paccar Hall on the UW Campus and the event is kid, stroller and dog (on leash please!) friendly.

WFoster Fun Run8hat do you consider to be the best part about the Foster C4C Fun Run? While the race is chip-timed and is great for the competitive runner, there is also a fun, relaxed edge to the race. The best part is seeing all of the participants celebrating the completion of the race and enjoying some of the sponsor snacks and refreshments.

Foster Fun Run2How many participants do you expect for the race? We expect around 150 participants at the race.

How long has the Foster C4C Fun Run been around? This is our third year hosting the event. It has been exciting to witness the event grow each year.

Does the Foster C4C Fun Run benefit any charitable organizations? It does! The Fun Run benefits Special Olympics of WA, Boys & Girls Clubs of King County, and University District Food Bank.

Foster Fun Run9Do you organize other events as well? As far as races go, this is the only run we offer, but our organization participates in a variety of philanthropic events throughout the year that benefit the charitable organizations we support.
