The coronavirus pandemic has shuttered the schools of International Samaritan's scholarship students in five developing nations. These students are now required to keep up with their studies on-line from their homes, where many of them don't have the technology they need to remain in school on-line.
We are running--and raising money--to equip 465 of International Samaritan's scholarship students with the tablets they need to succeed in their studies.
Run or walk on your own, or organize or join a team of others, to help raise $140,000 needed for tablets for 465 students in Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica and Nicaragua.
We are asking everyone who takes part as an individual (and is not a member of a team) to commit to raising $300, or the cost of one tablet, in addition to their registration fee of $20. If you are not able to commit to raising that amount, we still encourage you to run and set whatever fundraising goal you can, if any.
We are asking every team to commit to raising $1,500, or the cost of five tablets, in addition to their registration fee of $20. Participants on a team can set their own fundraising goals at any amount, as long as the team together is committed to raising at least $1,500. There is no limit to how many people can be on a team.
This is a virtual race. You can run or walk your 5K anywhere in the world between October 15 and November 1.
Schools, churches, businesses and families are invited to compete in teams of 5 or more people, with each team committing to collectively raise $1,500 to cover the cost of five tablets. Good-hearted team rivalries and interesting team challenges are encouraged and will be celebrated through social media.
Looking to see how much your team has fundraised? See your current amount and ranking on our team donation page.
To encourage registration, the first 300 registrants will receive a FREE International Samaritan "Stop... and Change a Life" T-Shirt. Those who successfully fundraise the full $300 for a tablet will also receive a special "Run... and Change a Life" race day T-Shirt. These are our thanks to you for your dedication and celebrate your success!
