The Run Across Haiti is an annual ultra-marathon to raise funds to support our work in ending extreme poverty through good, dignified jobs. We run to show the world that Haiti is not a place to be feared, not a place to be pitied, and not a place to forget. It’s one of the hardest adventure runs in the world, and we’re pretty proud of that.
In February, 2016, we mapped out a route of 230 miles, split it up in 8 days, and invited 20 runners to make the trek with us. Our goal was to raise $125,000. We wrapped up the campaign having raised $137,500.

- Enroll all Team Tassy kids into school and out-of-school time programming;
- Place family members into job training, language programs, and soft skills development workshops; and
