To our support-team:


We are approaching race day and we are ready! Thanks to you supporters we have reached and surpassed our $60,000 goal and we are ready to run! So many of you trusted us, believe in the women's program and gave money toward our ambulance. We thank you!

Most women in Haiti deliver their babies at home without a skilled attendant. Many moms and babies die because no one was there to get them life saving help. Our program seeks to educate women, give them prenatal care and prepare them for the safest birth possible. In an emergency situation we will be able to get them to a hospital quickly. As you read in one of our earliest posts we had a mom who delivered her baby in the dirt while trying to get to us. At night there is no public transportation so women deliver at home. What a difference having an ambulance vehicle will make!

If you visit Haiti you will be amazed at the number of overcrowded orphanages. Many of these kids are from moms who died in or around the weeks of childbirth. Our program aims to change that. Our goal is safe pregnancies, safe birth and intact families!

Thank you for trusting us! We runners thank you and we will be thinking of your donations as the miles pile up and we are hurting! Your donations will help us to make it to the finish line! Thank you for giving to a program which aims to help women who are powerless to help themselves. Thank you for caring! Thank you for investing in a runner and investing in the women of Heartline!

You gave for them - we will run for them! We all cross the finish line and win!
