Seven-time U.S. National Champion and two time Olympian, Alan Culpepper,will be training the team for J/P HRO’s second marathon. J/P HRO’s team of Haitian marathon runners are back to compete in this year’s race. The team includes three men, Astrel Clovis, 44, Pétrus Césarion, 28, and Jean Macksony, 32, and two women, Bertine Lainé, 32, and Carline Lamour, 22. These elite athletes will be joined by a cohort of J/P HRO runners comprised of philanthropists, high profile entrepreneurs, celebrities and supporters of the organization.
Founded by actor Sean Penn, J/P Haitian Relief Organization is dedicated to saving lives and bringing sustainable programs to the Haitian people quickly and effectively. Following the tragic earthquake of 2010, J/P HRO began working immediately to make a meaningful and lasting impact in Haiti. The goal of J/P HRO is to support the residents of the camps we manage and surrounding areas transition from life left homeless by the earthquake to durable, sustainable, and prosperous communities. J/P HRO has implemented its mission through four integrated programs: Medical, Camp & Relocations Management, Engineering & Construction, and Community Development. We work with the support of and in collaboration with local and national government leaders, community based organizations, other international NGOs, UN agencies, donors and—most importantly—the community members themselves.
