BENEFITING: Be Like Brit Foundation
I am running this 5K for the Be Like Brit Foundation, which was started by the parents of Britney Gengel. Britney was 19 when she died in the Haiti earthquake while on a college service trip. She texted her mom a few hours before the earthquake saying that she wanted to move to Haiti and open an orphanage. You can see pictures of the orphanage they are building (earthquake resistant and in the shape of a giant B!) and read more about the project at www.belikebrit.org. Thanks!
