BiG Cardio 2013 was bigger than it’s ever been--raising over $200,000 and attracting over 2000 participants and spectators--thanks to more runners, corporate teams, added sports and fitness classes, and an even bigger FunZone than last year.

BiG Cardio may be over for another year, but there will always be kids who need our help—and you can help them right now. With May being National Foster Care Month, there’s no better time than now to show your support.

Hear what others had to say about this fun day:
I thought the event went so well! It was just good to come out and run for the glory of God and remember that life is just like this race. It can be tough but there is definitely a reward in the end. It was great to be out here and run with our team and support this great cause.—Mark Kischner (Patmos team member and medal winner)
We are working out to help the kids! We love to help any kids we can—this is an excellent cause and it’s our third year doing it. By doing this, we are teaching our own kids to care for other kids who don't have what they have. We come back every year—it’s a tradition!—Angela Ross
I'm here running for 4KIDS because I believe in what they stand for. I graduated from the program and they were amazing—they changed my life!—Ashton Rossi,
We are at BiG Cardio today because we believe in 4KIDS and we have a little foster baby in our home that we are blessed to take care of! Our kids had a blast too! It’s our third year and it’s SUCH a fun event for the family.—Gretchen Scruby
We're playing volleyball to support the kids. Our whole team is first-timers and we just learned about 4KIDS from another volleyball organization. We had a great time today! —Brad Dazzle
I came to BiG Cardio to support 4KIDS and the children in foster care. I went through the His Caring Place program when I was pregnant with my daughter – so now it’s time to give back!—Brittany Zarembka
It is so exciting to come out and see this many people with a variety of interests working out for these kids. Today, everyone gets to see that fitness is fun and support an amazing program at the same time—the camaraderie, the team spirit, it’s an awesome way to spend the day, being outside and with friends and family all coming together for the same cause.—Cindy Sherman, 4KIDS Director of Foster Care, Palm Beach
BiG Cardio was amazing today. I did the Cross-fit class because I wanted to support 4KIDS. I feel like I need to give back and God was calling me to do it. I used to be in foster care and because of 4KIDS, I'm becoming a leader. It’s a great cause and I got a great workout!—Heramb Joseph
God commands us to help the widows and the orphans and this is one way I can help take care of orphans.—Christie Jerez
4KIDS is an amazing organization and this is a way to reach out and share God’s love with kids that are in desperate situations. This is my first time and I will absolutely be doing it again!—Dianna Brumby
