Frequently Asked Questions

I am going to register my child for the fun run. Do I need to register myself if I plan to run with him or her? No. You do not need to pay for yourself to join your child in the fun r(un).

I registered for the r(un) but am not going to be able to make it. Can I get my money back? Unfortunately, there are no refunds for this race. Please know that your registration fee will still go to supporting (un)adopted’s ministry to the fatherless.

I cannot run, but would like to support the r(un) for one. We have a number of opportunities available for business and individual sponsorships. Please contact Krystal Brummitt at krystal.brummitt@lifelinechild.org or 205-940-4623 for more information on how your business, restaurant, family or church can be involved in supporting (un)adopted.

Do you need volunteers for the r(un)? We need lots of volunteers for each city’s event! Serving time will be from 6 AM until 11 AM. Please send an email to the contact listed below for your city and we will follow up  with available volunteer opportunities.

Can I pick up my packet before race day? Yes! The locations for each city are listed below:

Birmingham-  August 19 | 11:00am – 6:00pm | Trak Shak on 280: 4740 U.S. 280 Birmingham, AL 35242

What if I can’t make it to packet pick up? That is okay. You can still pick up your packet the morning of the run. However, we recommend getting there by 7:00 AM.

What time should I be at the race? If you have not picked up your packet or have not registered we recommend being at the venue around 7 AM. Registration gets busy at 7:00 A.M. and this will give you plenty of time to take care of everything and be ready to run at 8 AM. If you have already picked up your packet we recommend being there around 7:30.

What should I expect on race day? A lot of fun! We will have everything from good food, fun activities for the kids, as well as an opportunity to see some of what the Lord is doing through our (un)adopted ministry. Plan to hang around long after the race has finished.

Do I get a t-shirt or other giveaway? If you register for the 5k by August 11th, you are guaranteed a t-shirt. If you register after the 11th or on the day of the run you will receive a shirt as long as they last. Extra shirts, including youth sizes, will be available for purchase the day of the race for $15 as long as supplies last.
