About This Activity

Join us for our second annual 5K Run for Hope!! Proceeds will support Hope Endeavors a 501(c)3 non-profit in supporting children suffering from extreme poverty, and help support an orphan care left in Malawi, Africa that currently provides a home for 40 HIV positive children.  Proceeds from the run will help provide funds to build a secondary school in the village the orphan care left is located at, allowing the children to remain at the care left and recieve life-saving care while allowing them to progress in their schooling. The closest current secondary school is 5K from the care left, making this a fitting event.

Not into running? That’s ok, here’s another way to help out! Come check out the H.O.P.E. Store, where you can purchase Malawian totes and headbands, handmade bracelets, necklaces, and more. All profits go toward building a school at the care left. Thanks for your support!
