Walk/Run For Adoption

Getting out there to support MARE.

“What makes a house feel like a home?” asks Jordan's Furniture, CEO, Eliot Tatelman. “It's not furniture,” comes the surprising answer, “It's family. But hundreds of kids living right here in Massachusetts are waiting for all the comforts of home AND family,” he adds.

That’s why at Jordan's Furniture we continue to champion for children in state foster care. Every year, we coordinate and host the Annual Walk/Run for Adoption to benefit the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE), and their programs, which recruit adoptive parents for children and teens in state foster care.

Our exciting Walk/Run for Adoption event kicks off with a 5K Run (chip-timed) and family-friendly 5K Walk. After the walk/run, participants enjoy a celebration party with a DJ, photo booth, face painting, balloon twisting, stilt-walker, caricature artists, sand art, and more.
