Together in Hope

Together in Hope envisions a world where children don't go hungry, where children can go to school, where parents can afford to give their children a future and where children don't die of curable illnesses. Together in Hope believes that if we all work together, together in hope that we can make this world a reality and give those living in poverty a future with hope.

Together in Hope works with some of the world's poorest communities living in the Philippines, El Salvador and Ethiopia who have been forgotten by international development organizations. We work with these communities to help them break the cycle of poverty and give them a future with hope.

The Woodlands Marathon, Half, 5K and 2K
March 1 - 2, 2013
 The Woodlands, TX

In July 2010, I ran my first half marathon with the help and encouragement of my son, Danny Feiler.  At the time, a 13 mile half marathon seemed impossible.  But working together with God’s help - taking one step forward at a time and never giving up – we did the impossible. Danny ran beside me every step of the way and wouldn’t let me give up. After months of training and perseverance, we crossed the finish line together.  

Children in the Alta Miraflores squatter community of San Salvador, El Salvador, live in devastating poverty.  The hope of education, nutrition, health, and a future of sufficiency rather than mere day-to- day survival, feels like an impossible hope.  Together in Hope was founded on the belief that if we and others with like minds and hearts, worked together in hope, we could make the impossible possible.  Our goal is to build a community center that will include a larger school for more children, a medical and dental clinic, and job training.  We have found land within the community that is ideally located for this center.  On March 2, 2013, I am again seeking to do the impossible not only by seeking to run a full marathon, but also by seeking to raise $50,000 – half will be used to buy the land for the community center and half will support our full-time Salvadoran community social worker, Edwin Reyes, who grew up in the community and is committed to helping the members of this community move out of poverty into a more hopeful future.  Danny, my son, is running with me.  He has worked in Alta Miraflores with these precious children and families.  Danny wants them to have the same chances for a future that he has.  Danny and I need your help.  Every contribution helps and is fully tax- deductible. Please give generously so that together in hope, we can do the impossible.  We can change the world: one child, one family, one community at a time.  Let’s start in Alta Miraflores with this race!
