 Run Houston! Sugar Land 10K, 5K, 1K
December 7, 2019

With the continuous support of God and the incredible individuals of this wonderful charity we have taken a huge responsibility this season.  In honor of my brother-in-law Melbin Batista, who was called to be with the lord in August 2018 following a tragic car accident.  We will be fundraising for the needs of these wonderful children of Dominican Republic (DR). Melbin was born in DR, loved his country and most importantly loved giving back. He was a gentle man, with so much love, respect and eagerness to help anyone he could. He gave to anyone, even when he did not have it. He is our guardian angel and watches over us from heaven. I am sure God has him busy with his many tasks of giving.


With your support we will be giving back to Melbin’s beloved country and the children that make this gorgeous place bright. The need in DR is huge. Families do not have adequate beds for their children to lie on, families all sleep together in one bed. Our goal is to raise funds to be able to build beds for the children of Makarios. Melbin’s children Layla, Raul and Liliana their mother Maggie, my children Belen and Zion including my husband Ray and I will be participating in the 1k run to commemorate our beloved Melbin. With your support this will become a reality. Please consider aiding us in our efforts!


1 bunk bend cost $200 to build, the need is 40 bunk beds=$8,000


Every night we lay our heads in our comfortable beds and take the smallest things for granted. Now we are presented with an opportunity to give back to a community in need. Please consider donating to the beautiful children of Makarios in the DR.


Melbin, we love you, miss you...we know you look down on us with your beautiful gentle smile and our proud of us.  God, we know your need for Melbin was greater than ours. We know he is in your glory and one of your favorite angels….
