Nonprofit Families4Families is inviting Statesboro residents to participate in the organization’s 4x4x48 Challenge — which stands for four miles every four hours for 48 total hours.

The 4x4x48 challenge is an endurance event that will begin Friday, Nov. 25, at 8 a.m. The final run segment (#12) will begin Sunday, Nov. 27 at 4 a.m. Legs will be starting every four hours, on the hour, until finished.

Serving foster children is a tough endeavor. Mental and physical struggles come along with caring for children in need. The days in serving these children seem like they will never end.

However, with support, these families can succeed and help these children have a future that they desperately need.

This event seeks to raise awareness of the need for Fostercare Families and how we at Families4Families seek to support the families and children involved.

Running this event together, whether in-person or virtually, helps to know that you are not alone in the struggle. Being together during the event helps to finish the challenge set before you.

All proceeds of the event go to support the Foster Families and Foster Children within Families4Families through monthly Date Nights, Mom’s and Dad’s Support Groups, Birthday Bags for Foster Families, and much, much more!
