About This Activity

Dig through your closet or go to your local thrift shop and find that Ugly Christmas Sweater that at one time you thought was awesome.  Then come run that "I Haiti My Christmas Sweater 5K Run/Walk"!  All proceeds from this event will benefit the orphaned children of the Emmanuel Orphange in Jeremi, Haiti and enable those who would go and minister to them.

Event details and schedule
