(WJBK) - Gift of Adoption is celebrating National Adoption Awareness Month and National Adoption Day with a Stair Climb event that will raise funds for Michigan-area families who want to adopt.
The event will take place on November 18, which is National Adoption Day, at the Southfield Town Center at 8:30 a.m.
Participants can climb all the way to the 28th floor, do a partial climb to the 14th floor or climb as many flights as you desire.
The event hopes to raise $10,000 and provide grants to one or two families in Michigan to help them complete an adoption.
Clarence Gleeson and Jim Berkemeier from Gift of Adoption joined us in studio to tell us more about the event. You can hear from them in the video player above.
