In February 2017 I completed the Run Across Haiti with the Team Tassy (now WORK) team and helped to raise funds that were used to help WORK's families in Menelas obtain job training, education and medical care. It was an amazing experience and I was thrilled to accomplish the goal of running across such a beautiful country. But it was even more gratifying to see the generous response from my friends and families that collectively contributed over $8,000 to my campaign and to see the difference that WORK is making for their Haitian families.
In February 2018 I closely followed the 2018 RAH team via social media. Each day I knew what was in store for them, how far they would run, the sights they would see, and the places they would stay. Each day I was more and more envious that they were there and I was not. At the end of the week a record number of runners completed the entire course and the team collectively raised over $250,000 to benefit WORK's families in Haiti. I was so impressed and proud of them! And I decided I couldn't bear to watch another team Run Across Haiti without me.
So here we go! In February 2019 I will once again participate in WORK's Run Across Haiti. And I ask that you again to consider contributing to my fundraising campaign. I can assure you that the monies raised will be used to make a difference in the lives of the WORK families. Thank you!
