Run, Walk or Ride for Haiti

    The Save Haiti Bike Ride event is getting bigger and better. This year, the event will start with a run – 12 Laps for Haiti. The run starts at 7AM on Saturday January 14th, at Jaco Pastorious Park in Oakland Park. The run is symbolic in remembrance of the January 12, 2010 earthquake.

    Run and walk for Haiti

    Each runner can choose what he/she is running for. Here are some of the things you can run 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.

    Health and Fitness Instructor/Race Director, Widlin Dieu-juste will warm up participants with a zumba session with music by DJ Francois. The top three runners (people who finish the race) will receive prizes.

    You can also do a “12/10 for Haiti” – That is; run 12 laps and bike 10 miles. There are also the “12/20 for Haiti” and “12/30 for Haiti’ to test your fitness level. Will you run, bike or do both? You tell us.

    The run is a collaboration with J.U.S.T.E INC AKA Juste Do It 5k Run/Walk

    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, Darly Dieujuste and others. DJ Tony will keep the crowd on its feet.

    If you can run, run for Haiti, if you can bike, bike for Haiti, if you just want to have fun, join us at the finish line celebration and stand with Haiti.

    Join us as we promote a more active and healthy lifestyle. This run is free and open to all ages. Feel free to invite your family, friends and bring the kids. We provide different pace options to accommodate for all -participants. You will not be left behind.
