Hi! Thanks for visiting my page. My name is Danielle and I am joining the 2020 Run Across Haiti team. RAH is an 8-day, 200+ mile, ultramarathon journey from the North Shore to the South Coast of Haiti. Organized by WORK and supported by runners, crew, our families, friends, and network of donors.
While the run will be a physical challenge, our bigger challenge and goal is to tear down boundaries, stereotypes and set-backs that the people of Haiti face. Haiti is not a place to be feared or pitied. It is a place to be celebrated, visited, and there is massive opportunity to grow.
I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to run for something bigger. To wake up every day and chase my dreams. For some people, it is a dream just to have dreams. With your help, I know I will be able to train and complete this challenge. With your help, WE can raise awareness and money for this incredible cause.
In the 6 years that Work has led the RAH run- over $1 million has been raised to create dignified job opportunities for our Haitian families. These funds have helped to develop the severely impoverished city of Menelas, Haiti- providing people with job training and placement as well as healthcare and education for the families we serve. This year, our overall goal as an organization is to raise $275,000. Each of us runners are striving to individually raise $5,000.
If you’d like to make a financial donation towards my personal goal you may do so through this page. I will be doing various events and fundraisers in the Philly-area and will spread the word through my personal Instagram, @danielle_iannetta. I will also share my training and RAH journey there and welcome you to follow along!

Thank you in advance for your support and love. It means more than I can say!
LET’S DO THIS!!
