Our 12-person team is running about 200-ish miles and raising funds to benefit University of Miami's Pediatric Residency Program in Haiti. The program will train a class of 6-8 residents over a three year period. These residents will receive a specialized curriculum that includes the treatment and care of critically ill pediatric patients as well as prevention strategies for pediatric health and safety. Hospital Bernard Mevs has partnered with St. Damien’s and the University of Notre Dame to execute this program.
