Registration starts at 7:15 AM on Saturday January 13th, at Jaco Pastorious Park in Oakland Park. The running and Zumba activities will precede the kick off of the bike ride which, as in past years, will take us across counties in remembrance of the January 12, 2010 earthquake.

Each runner and biker can choose what he/she is running or biking for. Here are some of the things you can show up for: Better Public Schools, Political Stability, Better Infrastructure, Civic Engagement, Revival of Agriculture, Restavek, Sanitation, Haiti’s Sovereignty, Women’s Rights, STEM Education, Literacy, Gender Equality, Workers’ Rights, Better Healthcare, Girls Empowerment, Clean Water, Mentorship, Electricity, Access to Information and more. The run is a collaboration with J.U.S.T.E INC AKA Juste Do It 5k Run/Walk

Zumba for Haiti

 

After the run, our bikers will take the road to raise awareness throughout the streets, with stops in Boca at Mizner, in Delray at Veteran Park, then we will join the public at Bryant Park in Lake Worth for the Finish Line Celebration with live performances by Zeal Dubreus, Empress Addi & Band and others. DJ Tony will keep the crowd on its feet.

If you can run, run for Haiti, if you can zumba, zumba for Haiti, if you can bike, bike for Haiti, if you just want to have fun, join us at the finish line celebration for the I Stand With Haiti celebration.

Join us as we promote a more active and healthy lifestyle. The run and Zumba are free and open to all ages. Feel free to invite your family, friends and bring the kids.
