Join Chances for Children in a Virtual 5K by walking, running, biking, or hiking 3.1 miles in support of our Education Program!
On June 12th, 2021 throughout the day, racers will participate to raise awareness for students in Haiti.
Some quick facts:
-Haiti has no public (free) education system
-As of 2015, only 60.72% of Haitians were literate (compared to 91% in the rest of Latin America and the Carribean)
-Private tuition costs on average $180/school year per student. This is roughly a fourth of a Haitian's annual salary.
Since 2017 Chances for Children has financially supported 4 rural schools. In the past 4 years we have provided an education for 400+ students and employed 19 local teachers.
Join our Virtual 5K to raise awareness for our Haitian students and help Chances for Children continue our work in our 4 rural schools! Make sure to post on your social media while you complete the 5K to continue to spread awareness!
