Event Category: Fundraiser
Join us for a 5K to Benefit Puerto Rico presented by Run Hope Work on Sunday, October 1st at 8:30am. The run will start at Capital Crescent Trail at 3500 K Street NW in Washington, DC.
A donation of $25 or more will grant you entry into the run and a Puerto Rico bandanna! Funds raised for this event will be donated to rebuilding the Island of Puerto Rico following the recent destruction from Hurricane Maria via Friends of Puerto Rico.
Friends of Puerto Rico recently announced a task force of the diaspora and friends of Puerto Rico to enhance the reconstruction of the communities affected by Hurricane Maria. The task force will take care of providing the necessary help to those affected by this catastrophic na…tural phenomenon through a relief fund. For more details about this initiative and information about the mission of Friends of Puerto Rico to serve communities on the island via the diaspora and local organizations, please access www.friendsofpuertorico.or
Following the run we encourage you to stick around and enjoy the sounds of pleneros!
You may also donate more than the $25 participation fee when registering for the run. On the registration page there will be an option to donate to Run Hope Work. Please note that these funds raised will be sent to Friends of Puerto Rico as well.
Run Hope Work is a non-profit organization that uses fitness, mindfulness, professional development, and construction apprenticeships to bring stability to the lives of at-risk young people.
Please help spread the word, join us for a great event, and help us help all those in Puerto Rico!
