About This Activity

The Haitian Hustle is a local opportunity for you and your family to make a difference in the life of a child in Haiti! Join us for this 5th annual fun run/walk in Becker, Minnesota to raise funds to cover the educational costs of the children living at the Lighthouse Children's Home in Bon Repos, Haiti.

The Lighthouse, a ministry of Jesus in Haiti Ministries, is home to 10 children in grade school, many of whom were orphaned after the 2010 earthquake. Virtually all schools in Haiti are private, and the kids from the Lighthouse would not have the means to attend school without the funds from the Haitian Hustle. Race money will cover tuition, books and other supplies, uniforms, and transportation to school.

If funds raised exceed what is needed for educational costs this year, the additional goes into a scholarship fund for these same kids to use to continue their education after high school.

If you'd like to find out more about Jesus in Haiti Ministries or give additionally, please visit the JiHM website at www.jesusinhaiti.org.

Thank you for supporting these precious kids!
