In Caneille, Haiti, one-third of adults have never attended school but, in partnership with CRDF, mothers are changing this story for their children. This spring, let’s support their efforts and celebrate mothers with a Mother’s Day 5K! 

The virtual Mother’s Day 5K will start May 2 and conclude May 9, on the holiday. Sign up for the walk/run via the event’s Facebook page. The participation fee is a one-time gift of $20 which goes directly to creating opportunity through education in rural Haiti.

We highly encourage you to get moving with the moms or mother figures in your lives during this family-friendly event. Participating in this virtual walk/run is a way to both connect with the ones you love, and also to support and honor the work of women in Haiti to empower their children’s learning.

Prizes and event details

During your walk or run, please take a photo and post it to the event’s Facebook page so we can celebrate creating change together. You will be in the running to receive a $50 Target gift card for the best photo, judged by a Caneille Regional Development Fund board member.

We will also hold two random prize drawings to give away two $25 Target gift cards. All participants who sign up are eligible for these drawings.

While we suggest 5K, walkers and runners may set their own goals as they feel comfortable. The event’s Facebook page also is accessible to those without Facebook accounts.

For more information about this event, or if you want to learn more about the nonprofit and how you can get involved, message the Caneille Regional Development Fund on Facebook.
