First Annual National Kidsave Hike With Your Heart

Hike With Your Heart is a celebration of the outdoors and, for many participants, a way to spend time with the families they have grown from adopting or mentoring through Kidsave’s incredible programs. People from across the nation will join us from their own towns and local parks as we hike to raise funds to support Kidsave’s mission to find forever families for all kids, everywhere, which we have been doing since 1999.

Fundraising and activity competitions throughout the summer will culminate in a powerhouse week of celebration and community engagement, Friday, September 17 to Saturday, September 25.

Watch our podcast to see how it all works!


Every dollar raised by participants will go to support Kidsave’s innovative programs both here and abroad giving older kids in foster care a voice and a choice in who they get to know and who will ultimately become their forever family.

Kidsave is 501(c)(3) organization. Federal Tax ID 91-1887623. We need sponsors!
