2019 Run Across Haiti®
EVENT DATE: Feb 16, 2019
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Feb 24, 2019
The 2019 Run Across Haiti® dates are set and our runners are busy training. Over the past four years, the run has collectively raised $700K for our work in preparing and placing families in Haiti into good, dignified jobs, including jobs on the Run. The goal here is to show that Haiti is not to be feared or to be pitied and to raise funds to end poverty in Menelas, our community, through dignified jobs.
Our runners will cover over 200 miles across the entire country from north to south over the course of 8 days. We'll run over mountain ranges and through the urban core, and in the process show you Haiti through our team's perspectives. A few of our Work family members we work alongside are training to support the runners this year and they'll report from their checkpoints. Cheers to jobs. The adventure begins on February 16, 2019. Pick a runner to support!
