It is one thing to show Haitian pride, but it’s a different story when it comes to seeking opportunities to help the country of Haiti. Sons and Daughters of Haiti is dedicated to a combination of both honor and advocacy, especially during Haitian Heritage Month, which commenced on May 1st.
Saturday May 13, we observed the patriotic custom with our inaugural 5K Walk/Run at Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek. The event drew a large number of participants, including up and coming Haitian artist, Saskya Sky, who sang the Haitian National Anthem. We were grateful for the turnout, especially the chance to engage in this fitness activity, and celebrate our native country’s history and culture.
Remembering Haiti’s significant contributions to world history inspires us to make an impact on its present economic state, especially when so many leaders and organizations have neglected the people’s needs. Our objective is to use our skills and resources to improve health and infrastructure, one community at a time.
We aspire to host these 5K Walk/Runs annually in an effort to raise funds for health fairs/clinics in Haiti. We hope that you will join us in our endeavors and invest in our visions. Discover the initiatives we are taking by clicking here!! Together We Rise.
