THE STORY:

Team Tassy's 2017 Run Across Haiti dates are set and our runners are busy training. Over the past three years, the run has collectively raised $300k for our work in preparing and placing families in Haiti into good, dignified jobs. The goal of the run is to show that Haiti is not to be feared or to be pitied and to raise money to end poverty through dignified jobs.
 
Our runners will cover the entire country from north to south over the course of 8 days, a total distance of 230 miles. We'll run over mountain ranges and through the urban core, and in the process show you Haiti through our own lens, all to end extreme poverty. A few of our Team Tassy family members we serve are training to support the runners this year. The adventure begins on February 18, 2017!
 
Check out The North Face produced documentary on our run, titled Further. and our dispatch videos from last year's run:

Here's how you can help us reach our goal of $200k:
1) Pick the best coolest cat on the team below and DONATE.
2) Throw a happy hour. Tell friends to bring a 20-dollar bill. Drink and be merry. Repeat.
3) SHARE, SHARE, SHARE WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS #RunAcrossHaiti . Be sure to like us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram - @TeamTassy - to get the latest news on the run.
