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!
