We are so excited to invite athletes from Haiti to our 5K and Obstacle Challenge this year.   Our fundraising page will be devoted to funding their travel to the US so they can participate in the race.  Additional funds raised over the cost of their trip will go to the mission of the Haiti Rehab Project including funding a rehab clinic in Haiti.  Please thoughtfully consider making a donation here.  Any amount is greatly appreciated!
