Run Houston! University of Houston 10K, 5K, 1K
September 24 - October 17, 2017
Thank you for visiting my Team Casa de Esperanza page!
Our mission is as follows: 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. Casa de Esperanza provides residential care, and coordinates medical and psychological services according to the needs of each child.
As many of you visiting my page already know, I have worked for Casa de Esperanza for the past 2 1/2 years; first through the Hands of Hope Internship program as a House Parent, then as the Community Foster Care and Adoptions Caseworker, and now as the Volunteer Coordinator. To say that I love our agency, our mission, and especially our children would be an understatement.
This will be my very first year running on behalf of Casa de Esperanza in the Run Houston Race Series at the University of Houston. I am dedicating my run to all of the children who have ever come through Casa; These children deserve the world and I want to do whatever I can to help them while they are here. Join me in making a difference for our children, won’t you?
I ask that you click the "SPONSOR ME" button on this page and contribute to providing the Casa kids a brighter future. Contribute what you wish; No amount is too small!
