The statistics are staggering, but we can make a difference in the lives of orphans! Please join us for a fun, family event and help raise funds to benefit orphan care. The pavilion is next to a playground and small water park too!

This community event includes a 5K run (with chip timing), a 1 mile walk, and a kids’ fun run.

All proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the children at the Haiti Lifeline Ministries Orphanage in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. On average, Haiti Lifeline houses, feeds, clothes, and provides care for 100 orphans. Haiti Lifeline also provides education (school uniforms and shoes), medical/dental care, and clean water for the orphans and surrounding community. The money raised from this event will help implement a vitamin program at the orphanage, increase medical supplies and equipment to care for the children and those in the surrounding area, and help add a playground for the orphans and school children. Thank you for your support! You are helping to change the lives of orphans in Haiti!
