Edelweiss school took part again in the Race Against Hunger, an Action Against Hunger project. This year, we are helping Haiti, destroyed by an earthquake on 2010. Following this, Haitians also had to deal with two cyclones and a new threat – cholera. These occurrences have increased the population´s vulnerativity with regards to food and, each year, the most vulnerable people´s health suffers.
Our students have to look for sponsors (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbours, friends…) who will commit to making a donation for every lap they run on race day.
Our children made a big effort to run as far as possible to contribute with their sponsors (mainly family) to help Haiti. Here you can see a summary of the race day:
