I am running in the San Francisco Marathon on behalf of the United States Foundation for the Children of Haiti. We are raising money specifically to help build a school on the property where there is already an orphanage and a home for disabled children.
The plan is to construct a new two story school building. This new building will allow us to teach our own children in a better learning environment and also open the school to children living in the neighborhood. The new school will also free up the second floor of the Rainbow building to accommodate more children at the Village.
As an occupational therapist, I had the opportunity to volunteer at Hope Home in the summer of 2012 with the Global Occupational Therapy for Orphans team. It was during this time that I fell in love with the children of Haiti and the amazing people who give selflessly of their time and energy to make Hope Home a success. I am so proud to be running the San Francisco Marathon in honor of such a great organization. I hope you will join me in supporting such a great cause!!
