We wanted to pass along this message from one of our partners, Hand in Hand with Haiti
If you are interested in a great way to get up and get moving while also helping some very important work in Haiti, here is a great suggestion! RUN… Hand in Hand with Haiti is set for Sunday October 21, 2012, at the Duck Pond Shelter, Assiniboine Park. There is a 9:00am Pre-race Meeting & Warm-up, and a 10:00am 5K Fun Run/Walk and 10K Timed Run.
RUN…Hand in Hand with Haiti is an official Fair Trade Event. The RUN t-shirts are certified ‘sweat-shop free’, the coffee/tea is Fair Trade & organic, the Haitian handmade gifts are Fair Trade; locally produced baking will be waiting for all participants to enjoy, and there are free pre & post run massages available! So come out and walk, run, volunteer, make a donation, or sponsor a runner; there many ways to ‘Help Haiti Build Better than Before’, right here in Winnipeg.
To register as a volunteer, walker or runner, simply click here. You can also register in person at any Winnipeg Running Room location. If you need more information or have any questions, please go to the Hand in Hand with Haiti website . Hand in Hand with Haiti is a project of EMAS Canada.
