The last year has simultaneously been one of the most trying and exciting years. While the unrest in Haiti slowed our progress and halted many trips and needed interactions, we were still able to deepen our footprint and expand our services to more families than ever, including the First Mile collectors network. Our current COVID-19 response efforts will reach over 2,000 family members and First Mile collectors throughout Haiti. In some ways, these challenges have made it necessary for us to grow but we couldn’t have done it without your support.
With COVID-19 requiring us to take proper precautions and launching a comprehensive response effort, we’ve decided to cancel our Run Across Haiti® this year. Given that our 2020 RAH runners put in the work to complete 200 miles across Haiti, we wanted to channel that training to “show up” for each other and support our families in this fight. To that end, we’re excited to launch our Run Across May to complete 200 Together!
While our runners will run 200 solo miles, we invite you to join us to do 200 of your choice of activity. Run 200 miles, lunge 200 times a day, do 200 minutes of activities a week…,etc. There are infinite ways to exercise indoors and safely outdoors.
If you’re able to, help us raise $200 to provide a family with essential items to shelter at home for the month and support our work. You can create a fundraiser donat to someone who is committed to raising $200 throughout the month of May.
To participate in 200 of an activity beyond fundraising, join our Run Across Haiti® Club on Strava, register your 200 and we'll kick this off May 1st.
Thank you for your support for our families in Haiti.
