BENEFITING: MISSION 292
We have been able to continue the annual race in Haiti which but not without your support. Thank you for your generosity. Each year I have the task of raising enough money simply to make the event happen. The total we need to raise for the 2017 event is $3500.00 which covers the cost of critical parts of the event such as prize money for Haitian runners and children's field day winners. It helps us fund the trophies and medals given for the two amazing events. It covers the local advertising, the generator rental, the luggage fees to bring down donated shoes, food for the Haitian runners, and a very special trip to the beach for 45 children from a local orphanage and employees a few of the Haitians in the community who run water stations and keep and eye on the lead runners. Please help us to continue the tradition of this event which gives educational hope to thousands of children from the school we support. Thank you in advance for your generosity and for sharing this link with other family and friends. It's not too late if you just want to join the 2017 team leaving to Haiti January 11-17th!
This year our goal is to raise $25,000 to put a new roof on our kindergarten school building. Although Ouanaminthe was not hit hard by the hurricane, it brought more water than the already sagging roof could hold. This has created a dangerous situation for the children. Please help us reach our goal. Together we can do a little to change A LOT!
