The 1st Orphan Love Run took place in November 2013 and benefited the Swain family's adoption of their daughter, who was waiting in an orphanage in China. Their prayer was that the race would grow every year and that it would serve as a spotlight on the plight of waiting children across the world. All proceeds from the event are used to fund adoption and waiting children charities. The 2nd Annual Orphan Love Run helped the Augsburger family bring their son home from China. The 3rd Annual Orphan Love Run will help the Zacharias family bring home their little girl from the Hunan province in China.
