In January 2020, myself (along with other runners) will cover 200 miles across the entire country of Haiti from the north coast to the south coast over the course of 8 days. We'll run over mountain ranges and through the urban core, and in the process show you Haiti through our team's perspectives. The Run Across Haiti (RAH) was created by WORK, a non profit with a mission to aid families out of poverty through good, dignifed jobs.
Over the past 5 years, running has became my world and through sport, I have learned some of my greatest life lessons, developed some of my strongest bonds to the community and fostered an evergrowing desire to use my passion for running to make a difference for others.
Through the greater running community, I have been able to see WORK's mission continually be fufilled by individuals I admire and look up to. I have felt the difference WORK has made for families in Haiti through their journey and commitment. This includes providing families open access to medical care and assistance for education, as well as job training and placement support, job creation, and local economic and community development for families in Menelas. This year I will be joining the RAH team, in fundrasing, running and meeting the families, children, teachers, and everyone else in the community to end poverty in Menelas, through dignified jobs.
So with that, I would like to thank you sharing this journey and checking out my fundraising page. With my whole heart, I thank you for donating to this cause and supporting my next journey to Run Across Haiti. The adventure begins on January 25, 2020.
With love, Jenna
