Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, our physical Light the Way 5k scheduled to take place in Cleveland, TN was postponed (hopefully to the fall). Across the country, many charities serving on the front lines to help some of our most vulnerable populations are feeling the financial impact of cancelled fundraisers and events.

We want to invite our community of supporters around the world to take a moment, get outside for some fresh air, and make a difference in the life of an orphaned or abandoned child living at one of our partner homes.


  1. Either Register online (below) for a $25 donation or start your own Facebook fundraiser benefitting Serving Orphans Worldwide with a goal that you create and make an initial $25 donation to kickstart your fundraiser! (We can walk you through this. Email Reece@soworldwide.org if you need assistance)
  2. Once you make an initial $25 donation, we will email you with more information and you can select an item from our SOW store (T-Shirt, mug, or soap).
  3. Get outside and get some fresh air! Take your family for a stroll or go for a solo run. Post photos or video clips to social media and use the hashtag, #LightTheWayOnline5k. 100% of your gift will help our partner children’s homes around the world during this time of crisis.
  4. BONUS STEP: The individual with the most amount raised on your Facebook fundraiser by May 16th will win a $250 Amazon Gift Card and a SOW care kit provided by our sponsors!
