My Story…

Ever since traveling to Haiti in 2017, I have been inspired by the people, country, and life there and driven to continue keeping the community close to my heart. With the coronavirus reaching a Haitian culture that is unable to socially distance, stock up on food, or seek medical attention, Haiti is in need of our help. This is my third year running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon for Haiti H2O and supporting the mission of the organization and the people of Haiti. Please help in reaching my fundraising goal and supporting something close to my heart. Every little bit helps! I will be running the "virtual" half marathon in Austin on May 23rd.


Haiti H2O is a development organization based in Pittsburgh partnering to transform hope into opportunity in rural Haiti.  Our approach is to take time to listen to local leaders and invest in their ideas, empowering them to make positive change.  We currently work with four rural communities in areas such as education, health and sanitation, business initiatives, home construction, and livestock cooperative.  H2O invests the money raised to impact the lives of people in rural Haiti!
