Last week we had to rush Alex, one of our teenage boys, to hospital for an emergency operation to remove his appendix.Due to some complications Alex was kept in hospital for a few days. Thankfully he is now back at home recovering, but the operation, aftercare & medication has left us with a USD $1500 (£1100) bill.
Our huge family of 36 kids, staff & volunteers have decided to take part in this year's 5k Carrera De Color (5k Color Run) to raise the necessary funds for Alex.

Event details

5k Carrera De Color

The Color Run "The Happiest 5k on the Planet" is a global event to promote healthiness and happiness and bring families and communities together.
Our Color Runners start the day in a white t-shirt, getting covered from head to toe in a rainbow of colours at each kilometre of the course.
Our whole family are taking part - with the choice to run, walk, skip or dance their way around if they feel like it. It's all about the fun and creating the biggest smiles for Alex to see!
