With the start of fall, we’re taking a moment to “spring back” to one of our favorite events this year—WACAP’s Race for Home 5k Fun Run. Here’s one of the many families that made it such a success and is helping us look forward.
Meet the Harrington family: Patrick and Amy, and their kids, Ryan, Meghan and Brennan (adopted through WACAP).
This active family models a lifestyle of giving back, and the children know that no matter how big or small a gift may be, that gift makes a difference.
For parents Patrick and Amy, philanthropy is part of who they are as a family. Together, they participate in charity fun runs, child sponsorship and WACAP Family Camp in August.
When they joined us at WACAP’s inaugural 5k Fun Run in Seattle this year, we asked them about why they model giving in their lives and activities.
Here’s what Amy says:
“I feel like we want to instill in our kids the idea of giving back. The idea that giving is part of what we do as a family and the idea that we have been blessed with plenty, and because of that we share what we have. That is what really matters.”
