CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) – It was an opportunity for adoptive parents and birth parents to connect this Mother’s Day weekend during the 7th annual Lutheran Social Services Adoption Walk-Run.

It took place at Irvine Park in Chippewa Falls Saturday.

WEAU 13 News is a proud sponsor of the event.

More than a hundred people turned out for the LSS fundraiser, promoting and raising awareness on open adoption.

"It's great, we get a lot of adoptive parent families as well as birth parent families that come out to enjoy the day and enjoy Mother's Day. Today is actually Birth Mother's Day. So it's a great day for those individuals to come together and celebrate adoption. We also have a lot of people that come out that are just runners that want to do the race with us to help raise funds for the LLS adoption advisory board,” said Carley Schnacky, the event coordinator.

WEAU’s Bob Gallaher was the emcee of the event.
