Description

What is 1k for Kids?

1K for Kids is a Casa de Corazón initiative created to materialize our values of social responsibility, intercultural learning, and the well-being of children around the world. In 2017, we are having a fundraiser to build community and raise resources for the foundation TECHO U.S. (http://www.techo.org/paises/us/) TECHO U.S will provide a platform for our donations to be sent to TECHO PERU and thereby help children of families with limited resources in Peru.

TECHO (non-profit number U.S.: 27-1479398) is a youth led the non-profit organization with a presence in Latin America & the Caribbean. Through the collaborative work of families living in extreme poverty with youth volunteers, TECHO seeks to overcome poverty in slums.

Why do we walk for kids?

Walking has so much meaning. For us, its most important meanings are health, family time, enjoyment of nature and celebration. 1K for Kids is a 1-kilometer walk with your children, family, and friends. It is an opportunity to connect with the other families of Casa de Corazón, and also to make an international impact on the lives of children in need.

Please join us for this unique community event! All proceeds will be donated to TECHO. Our hope is that the day of the 1K all of the families, staff members, and other collaborators will walk alongside Casa de Corazón with the official t-shirt and enjoy a familiar environment along with the sales and gifts of our of sponsors.

Your t-shirt is your ticket. Click Register to be part of this big family party.
