"HALF 4 HAITI IV" is Sunday, 10/18. Please Pitch in if You Can! :)

 
Dear Friends,

"Half 4 Haiti IV" weekend is here! We've assembled our biggest team of Half 4 Haiti runners yet and we can't wait to hit the course at beautiful Lake Natoma in Folsom this Sunday. But that's just half the story... the other half is your solidarity! Each of our Half Marathon and 5K runners has pledged a minimum of $25 to our life changing projects serving Haiti's most vulnerable children described below. Now we're asking you to reach into your hearts, and your wallets, to match or beat the pledges of our dedicated runners. If you can't afford that much, please pitch in whatever you can. It's for a great cause and no donation is too small to make a difference. Simply send a quick email to us at paulb1221@sbcglobal.net and tell us how much you'd like to donate. We won't be collecting the money until after we cross the finish line.

Thank you all so much for your continued generosity and solidarity... many hands make the burden lighter. :)

In Peace & Solidarity,
Paul, Leisa, Luke, Maco
and the entire Children's Hope Half 4 Haiti Team!

Mabe Orphanage, Port au Prince
These are the Mabe kids who we have fallen in love with and have watched grow up over the last few years. They were taken in off the streets by our dear friend Maco and his family, and are being raised in a loving environment. But they have very few resources. No electricity, no running water, no toilets.

The Lamp for Haiti Clinic, Cite Soleil
The Lamp for Haiti is an amazing, inspiring community medical clinic providing free care to the children and residents of Cite Soleil, the poorest and most notorious slum in Haiti.
