5K Run At Vail Valley Will Take Place To Benefit Teens At Risk In Peru


Next Saturday, February 2, runners are invited to participate in a 5K event at Sylvan Lake State Park in the Vail Valley, United States, to benefit Corazón de Esperanza, a local nonprofit organization that empowers impoverished women in Peru.

“The sixth annual Snowshoe for Peru 5K will be held at 10 am”, according to Vail Daily. The organization Corazón de Esperanza also helps teens aging out of orphanages and that are at risk for human trafficking.

“Participants will be entered into a raffle with substantial giveaways with cash prizes for first place male and female winners in individual and age group categories”, the aforementioned media explained.

Proceeds from this event will help support youth services, educational sponsorships, women’s programs, short-term service trips, and volunteer programs of the NGO.

“Our desire is to educate and provide resources so that Peruvian youth have the opportunity to get an education and live independently,” Robyn Hanson, CEO of Corazón de Esperanza said. “We dedicate ourselves to give them every chance to succeed in life,” she continued.

Vail Daily informed that that year’s race had more than 100 participants. This year, registration is $30 US dollars and those interested can register online at www.snowshoeforperu.com, call 303-801-8958 for more information, or visit Corazon de Esperanza on its Facebook event page, “Snowshoe for Peru 5K.”
