We have lowered the registration fee so that more people can participate. And to encourage you to make a donation to either Kids Across Cultures or Helping Hands of Hico (or both!) The purpose of our run is to raise money for these great charities who focus on improving the lives of people locally and around the world. KAC and H3 will receive the proceeds from the run. And your additional donations can help that impact reach even farther. Last year we raised $2,700 and we hope you’ll help us break that record! Donate with your online registration or bring a check to the event.
* Kids Across Cultures is based in Dublin, Texas, and provides educational, medical, community, and clean water support to families and villages in need around the world. So many children and families still do not have access to clean drinking water and KAC is working to change that. In the last two years they have distributed over 6,500 ceramic water filters so that families can drink clean water and be healthier. This work is in partnership with the communities so that other needs, both short-term and long-term, can be identified and met. KAC is helping in China, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Mexico. KAC also assists Texas communities, such as providing new school supplies after Hurricane Harvey or helping with youth programs in inner city Dallas.
* Helping Hands of Hico works within the local Hico community to identify and meet needs in the areas of food, utilities, and housing.
