Join us October 11, 2014 for our second annual 5k benefit run/walk, “Correr for CARE.”

Our friends in Honduras have asked for our support in building a school in the community of Javier Soriano outside of Choluteca, Honduras. About 150 families living in the community, each living in a dwelling made of sticks, tarps, and cardboard. There are no community buildings in the area, including a school. More than 250 children live in the community, and to get to the nearest school, the children must cross the riverbed and walk an hour and a half to the closest school. This is a long, hot walk during the dry season, but the river crossing is impossible during the rainy season, during which time the children are unable to attend class. Help us raise the funds to build a school building in the community of Javier Soriano by donating today or registering to run “Correr for CARE” on October 11, 2014!

Check out our event registration site to learn more about the project the proceeds will support and STAY TUNED for updates on our 2014 event!
