BENEFITING: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
ORGANIZER: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
Welcome to my fundraising page! I am thrilled to be running the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon this November, on behalf of J/P Haitian Relief Organization. This will be my very first marathon and I am so excited to run!
In 2014, I moved to Haiti with the intention of doing non-profit and mission work for just a few months. Two years later, I was still there passionately working. Haiti has a way of making you fall in love with it, and I knew I wanted to continue my journey working for this beautiful country and, most importantly, its people.
I moved back to the United States in 2016 and accepted the position of Communications and Programs Manager at J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
Founded by Sean Penn, J/P HRO has been working tirelessly since its incorporation following the devastating 2010 earthquake; an earthquake that killed over 300,000 innocent people. Beginning as an emergency relief organization distributing medical supplies, J/P HRO quickly became a prominent force in Haiti.
Today, J/P HRO works in numerous areas with core programming in education, community development, medical, reforestation, and emergency response relief. Your contributions to my fundraising page will go directly to aid their life-saving work.

Again, thank you so much for visiting my page! Every dollar donated makes a huge difference in the lives of the Haitian people.
