I will be participating in the 2017 Run Across Haiti as one of three Support Crew Team Member Cyclist! Our team will be supporting 25+ runners as they cover the entire country of Haiti 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!
What Is Team Tassy's 2017 Run Across Haiti?
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. 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.
What Is Team Tassy?
Team Tassy's mission is to unleash the inherent power in every person to eliminate global poverty. Our work is based in Haiti, where we prepare and place the poor into good, dignified jobs so that they can pull themselves out of poverty forever.
