This is our 4th annual "Run for Nicaragua" Race! Since 2019 we've been able to raise over $37,000 to build homes for families in several Barrios in Nicaragua. Our goal in 2023 is to raise $20,000 to build homes in the Carlos Fonseca Barrio in Nicaragua. Each home costs $2,000. Can you believe that? A dry, safe home for a family in need for $2,000. Event funds also help Nicaraguan families with school supplies, furniture and more! To find out more visit: Join us and make a difference by simply running for Nicaragua in person or virtually.
