Running for Hope and Healing


If you’re going to run — why not do it for a great cause? Since 1999, Kids House has been a safe and caring place where child victims of abuse in Central Florida can find compassionate care and healing, and a comfortable place to stay while investigators look into a family’s situation.

Each year, thousands of children are helped, and their families are offered services and counseling.

WESH 2 anchor and Surviving & Thriving co-host Jim Payne leads an annual road race and fundraising event where 100% of the proceeds are donated to Kids House, and he shares the reasons that he’s so passionate about lacing up to make a difference.
