Whole Planet Foundation Partners with Hope for Haiti in Power Your Purpose Virtual 5K
Pivoting from a physical 5K Run in Austin, Texas to an online event due to COVID-19 has meant partners like Hope for Haiti are joining Whole Planet Foundation from a safe distance to alleviate poverty through microcredit around the globe. On average, microcredit loans are less than $200 and enable low-income entrepreneurs, mostly women, to start or develop their own small businesses to support their families. For the past 5 years, Hope for Haiti has been investing in Haitian economy by making nearly $1 million in grants and loans to support Haitian entrepreneurs and social businesses.
Join 1,100+ participants by signing up for Whole Planet Foundation’s Power Your Purpose Virtual 5K to run, walk, bike or move for microcredit in any way that suits you. 100% of registration fees for this online event will go to fund microlending programs through Whole Planet Foundation. Participants will enjoy various online discount codes from event partners and get to take a virtual trip to Haiti to see Hope for Haiti’s work in healthcare and economic opportunity.
