Date: April 4th, 2020
Time: 6:00 AM until 6:00 PM

In light of coronavirus and CDC recommendations for social distancing, we would like to offer a "No Run Fun Run" to help us cover some of our operating expenses and recoup some of our losses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. That's right, for just $25, you can still feel good about supporting a great cause, without breaking a sweat. If you would like a t-shirt, be sure to add your t-shirt size and your mailing address (plus $8 for shipping).

Any donation above your "No Run Fun Run" gift will be applied to purchase t-shirts for all 600 kids who will also receive backpacks.

The proceeds from our originally scheduled 5K, which has since been canceled, was intended to cover shipping, in-country transportation, Vacation Bible School Curriculum, and food for all the kids and volunteers during VBS week. Thanks for your support. Contact Oslyn Rodriguez at oslynrodriguez@gmail.com or 917.687.0327 with any questions. Thanks for your generosity.
