Regardless of geography,
Run together. Run with purpose.
How does the 5K run work? After registration, participants receive a race shirt and all pertinent information about the event. Participants may run or walk a 5K with a locally organized 5k (we’re happy to connect you if there’s a race going on in your area), with family/friends, or on their own. Participants will enter their times and photos into a race results website. Prizes will be mailed to winners within various race categories.
Is July 15th the only time that participants will be walking or running? In short, no! We will ask participants to consider joining the Light from Light community in a 5K on the morning of July 15th in an act of solidarity; however, we will accept “official” times that are submitted anytime between July 8-16.
What will the 5K benefit? All proceeds from this 5K will benefit Light from Light, a nonprofit organization that strengthens the foundations of progress in Haitian communities living with extraordinary poverty and chaos. We walk and work alongside proven leaders at our sister organization, Lespwa Timoun “Hope for Children” Clinic, empowering them to build and sustain long-lasting change.
