THE STORY:

Dear friends,

I am proud to run in the Coban International Half Marathon on May 26 in support of Trickle Up. Running is in my blood thanks to my father who was a great athlete all his life. I’ve participated in 7 half marathons, and my goal this time around is to beat my personal record of 2hrs 9min while wearing my Trickle Up t-shirt. The Coban Half Marathon is an international event that attracts 7,000 runners to our northern region of Guatemala each year. The race is more difficult compared to other half marathons because of the mountainous landscape of the Alta Verapaz and the humid climate.

As we tell Trickle Up program participants here in Guatemala, success is achieved through hard work, honesty and goal-setting. This is true for all types of success, whether it’s starting a business or completing a difficult race.

I joined Trickle Up as the Central America Regional Representative in 2007, after over a decade in the international development field. I am always impressed by how the people we work with in the rural, extremely poor and vulnerable communities of Guatemala tirelessly commit to improving the lives of their families through the Trickle Up program. Join me in helping them reach the finish line and graduate out of extreme poverty.

Thank you for your support!

Jorge Coy
