HaitiGO is helping develop a thriving Christian community in the northern hills of Haiti. HaitiGO provides student sponsorships, orphan care, church partnerships, and community care. The roots of this mission organization dates back to 1947 when Ericlee Gilmore's grandparents were pioneer missionaries in Haiti. Ericlee and Dorina started a non-profit called Christian Friendship Ministries in 2010, which is today HaitiGO.

A portion of proceeds and donations from Walk Run Soar Virtual Run 2020 will go toward a Widows Fund to support widows in Haiti. The funds will be used to furnish and resource a widow's home that was built this year in Fontaine, Haiti. Funds may also be used to provide food and supplies for the widows and help them build a garden so they may grow their own food. This Widows Fund will be an ongoing opportunity for HaitiGO to provide resources and jobs for Haitian widows in the future.
