Nationally, about 20,000 youth, aged 16 or older, make the transition from foster care to legal emancipation each year. Over 4,000 youth age out of Californias foster care system each year. The terms aged out or emancipated describe foster youth who are discharged from the foster care system when they attain a certain age. According to the Childrens Advocacy Institute, 65% of foster youth age out of the system without a place to live, less than 3% go to college, 51% are unemployed, and aged out females are 4 times more likely to receive public assistance than the general population.

This is a wonderful opportunity to help support emancipated foster youth. Proceeds from the race benefit Journey House, whose sole purpose is to assist emancipated foster youth to meet their independent living needs.
