Esperanza 5K for Safe Passage   Leave a comment

This Saturday, we will run the Esperanza 5K for Safe Passage in Southern Village.

Safe Passage provides approximately 550 children with education, social services, and the chance to move beyond the poverty their families have faced for generations. Safe Passage is a refuge for children contending with situations marked by extreme poverty, neglect and abuse. These children are defeating all odds by leaving the Guatemala City garbage dump where they have lived their entire lives, and coming every day to the program, where they learn about hygiene, receive a healthy meal, and work on achieving their academic dreams. The children in Safe Passage’s care remind us that there is much to hope for. For Chapel Hill specific questions, please contact ncfriends@safepassage.org

For those of us who want to do more than 3 miles, we will meet earlier (7 or 7:30 and run a route around Southern Village). Sign up here!
