Hike for Haiti Challenge

Join Hope for Haiti for our second annual virtual Hike for Haiti Challenge! In the rural community of Marre à Coiffe, Haiti, students and families climb the equivalent of 200 flights of stairs from the bottom of a mountain in order to access clean water, healthcare, and an education. We challenge YOU to virtually hike Marre à Coiffe in solidarity while raising funds to provide students at all of our partner schools with vital support, as well as the doctors, nurses, and health workers in southern Haiti who are on the front lines keeping students healthy from COVID-19.

During this time of social-distancing, the Hike for Haiti Challenge presents an opportunity for our community to join together virtually while physically apart. In addition to taking on the hike through a socially-distanced walk outside, participants can get involved in a healthy and safe way in the comfort of their own homes through live-streamed hike-inspired workouts and general wellness sessions that will be led by campaign partners and ambassadors.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Register today, and encourage friends and family to join you. 100% of your registration is tax-deductible.
  2. Climb 200 flights of stairs over the month of April 17 – May 17. You can make the climb anywhere – whether in your home, on a step machine, or outside while socially distancing. If you don’t have access to stairs, you can walk or run 22,000 steps (approx. 10.5 miles). You’ll also be able to join our live streamed hike-inspired workouts and general wellness sessions to help you reach your goal. Whether you complete the full distance or just a few steps, you’ll be helping to raise awareness and funds for students in rural Haiti. When you register, you’ll receive a calendar download that lists all of the live-streamed classes and has space to track your steps.
  3. Share your results on social media using #HFHChallenge and tagging @hopeforhaitifl for a chance to win prizes. We’ll also be sharing your pictures and videos on our social media accounts throughout the month!
