For those of you lucky enough to be in Puerto Vallarta in mid-February, this is a definite WIN-WIN for everyone – a nice Sunday stroll with no concern for traffic since the street will be blocked off, PLUS you help can children-in-need here in Puerto Vallarta. Please register right away to participate in a
leisurely 2 kilometer walk, run, or roll (bicycles, wheelchairs, etc) beginning at the Stadium across from the Sheraton. Registration donations will benefit the special children from Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza (RISE) and from Sendero de Esperanza y Amor (Sendero). There will be door prize drawings for the first 500 people registered and paid.
Another great option for those who are not in Puerto Vallarta or who prefer to sleep-in on Sundays is for you to sponsor a child from RISE or Sendero to walk in your place for a donation of 250 pesos ($20 US/CDN). Send your donation to Children’s Shelter of Hope Foundation before February 15th marked as “2 K Walk 4 Kids” and we will complete your registration and cheer for your child.
Registration forms are available now at Daiquiri Dicks (Olas Altas #314 – Old Town), Peyote People (Juarez #222 – Centro) and Erika Lamas Permanent Makeup (Timon 1-4 – Marina) or by contacting Sofia from RISE at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ceci from Sendero at email@example.com. The suggested registration donation to participate is 250 pesos ($20 US/CDN) per person, or 200 pesos ($15 US/CDN) per person for groups of 5 or more, or 100 pesos ($8 US/CDN) for students with valid IDs. Volunteers will also have registration forms at the various Farmers Markets in and around PV, as well as at gyms, stores, restaurants, etc. in this area.
