Run for orphaned and abandoned children around the world.
Saturday, May 17th, 2014
Join The Global Orphan Project for a morning of fun and exercise benefiting children in need around the world. This year, we’re running for children and chickens! Chickens provide much needed nutrition for children and jobs for workers in Haiti.
During the race, runners who catch GO Project’s founder, Mike Fox, will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift certificate. Prizes will also be awarded to the top competitors overall, team who raises the most support, and team with the most members. After the race, stay for a hot breakfast and kids’ activities.
