I am excited to be part of the Run for Central America Team. We are a new charity running team, so this might be the first you've heard of us. However, I would imagine you've seen Central America in the news quite a bit lately. We can’t run from the stories of poverty, immigration and conflict. But as part of this team, I have the opportunity to run and make a difference. We are running as a relay team 220 miles across El Salvador from March 14-21, 2020. The money we raise is to support Central American families as they transform their own communities through a variety of poverty alleviation and community economic development projects.
A $30 gift invests in one family in Central America and helps them thrive for a year!
- Run for Central America is an initiative of ENLACE. ENLACE (pronounced en-lay-say, the Spanish word for link) is a Central American community development organization with 26 years of experience helping church and civic leaders learn how to work together as a team and attack the fundamental problems that keep their communities trapped in the cycle of poverty. ENLACE coaches these local leaders in how to install clean water systems, provide loans to women starting small businesses, build schools and health clinics, construct homes for families and so much more.
