Fun Bun Run – 5K Run/Walk for Education

September 26, 8:30 am

On May 9th, 2020 the Hope for Haitians Board of Directors welcomes all individuals, couples and families to join us in Geneva, Illinois for a morning of good food, fast running, comfortable walking and a great time during the Ninth Annual 5K. The location is the Kane County Government Center.

This year we are raising funds to build a school in Garde Saline, Haiti. Hope for Haitians is one of three organizations partnering together to make this a reality for the children of Garde Saline. Join us and make this year one to remember by supporting education for children in Haiti.

100% of every dollar donated to this event is used for providing education to the Haitian children.

About Hope for Haitians’ work in Haiti

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere:

1 of every 14 infants dies before their first birthday
The average life expectancy is only 53 years
80% of the working age population is unemployed
By 6th grade more than 50% of children do not go to school
Over the past 19 years, Hope for Haitians has built over 700 small homes in Haiti that have a concrete floor, cinder block walls, and a metal roof. Over 4,000 Haitians live in these homes that have been erected in 15 villages. Each village is also given a water well, livestock, fruit trees, and other means to generate food and provide overall sustainability for the village.

For the past eight years, Hope for Haitians has also provided the hundreds of children that live in our villages with school uniforms, books, lunches, and tuition so they could attend school and get an education to help them stop the cycle of poverty that is currently their life. Along with the funds to sponsor the education of children in the villages, this year we are raising funds to build a school in the village in Garde Saline, Haiti.
