For millions of us, to get a drink of water there isn't much we need to do but for people in Haiti they must walk for hours to get to clean water. On April 7, 2018, we ask that you join the Jolly Scholastic Foundation as we drive awareness to water crisis in Haiti, while raising funds to build a borehole water well in L'acul nu Nord, Haiti.
Bring your family and friends and experience the journey that millions of women and children in Haiti make every day to provide water for their families. If you choose, you can even carry a gallon of water on the route.
Waterborne diseases claim more than half of the deaths each year, including the lives of more than 66,000 children in Haiti
Women and children bare the primary responsibility of finding and transporting water each day
The average distance a person walks to find clean water is 6 hours
1 in 5 children are chronically malnourished in Haiti as a result of not having clean water
Build a borehole water well that will improve the quality of life for hundreds of families in L'acul du Nord, Haiti. Using a community driven approach, we aim to work in cohesion with the locals, to educate them on sanitation and maintenance.
BENEFICIARY: All proceeds raised through the Jolly Scholastic Run/Walk for Water event will benefit the rural communities of Haiti, beginning with L'acul Du Nord
*Preregistered runners are guaranteed T-shirts.
Gates open & DJ warm up starts: 7:30am

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose.
