5th Annual Foster Family Fun Day

Arizona Helping Hands hosts more than 200 foster children for memorable day

On March 8, Arizona Helping Hands hosted its fifth annual Foster Family Fun Day at Arizona Sunrays Gymnastic and Dance Center. More than 200 foster children gathered for a fun day. The afternoon included gymnastics and dance classes, bounce attractions, special character guests courtesy of Storybook Entertainment, Papa John’s pizza, raffle prizes and crafts.

“Foster Family Fun Day is an opportunity for families in foster care to just have an opportunity to relax and play. Arizona Sunrays Gymnastics and Dance Center opened up their doors again this year to allow boys and girls to play on the equipment or to participate in a dance class. Moms and dads were able to sit back and breathe easy for a few hours, a welcome relief to parents raising 2, 4, 6 and even 8 children. It’s not easy to find a free family activity for such large groups. Seeing the smiles on the faces of children—and their foster parents—made this a very special afternoon,” says Dan Shufelt, Arizona Helping Hands president and CEO.
