As you may know, this year I am serving as a Hands of Hope Intern at Casa de Esperanza. 

Casa de Esperanza de los Niños - the House of Hope for Children - is a safe place for children in crisis due to abuse, neglect or the effects of HIV.

Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to care for six young children who inspire me everyday with their resilience and bravery. These children have overcome challenges beyond any I have ever faced, and now I have been able to see them grow and flourish in my home. 

I am running for Casa de Esperanza in the Run Houston Race Series at the University of Houston in honor of the children in my home and the incredbile nonprofit that has provided them with the resources to thrive here.

Your generosity is what allows the children at Casa de Esperanza to continue growing and thriving at this amazing place. If you are interested in supporting us, please click the SPONSOR ME button below and contribute what you wish.

Thank you for your support! Your generosity means the world to us:)
