HATT Foundation, Inc. Presents Haiti Earthquake Remembrance Walkathon 2012

In memory of the 300,000 who died in the Earthquake

Date: Saturday, January 14, 2012 (Rain or Shine)

Time: 7:00 AM- 12:00 PM   

Location: Lake Worth, FL City Hall

HATT Foundation, Inc. will be sponsoring its First Annual Walkathon in memory of the 300,000 who died in the 7.0 Haitian Earthquake.  5000 participants will march from Lake Worth City Hall to the Beach.  The Walk is expected to raise the funds that will enable the planting of 300,000 Fruit Trees throughout Haiti, one for each person who died.  This is part of a major reforesting effort in Haiti. 

The Walkathon will take place on Saturday, January 14, 2012.  Registration begins at 824 Lake Avenue at 7:00 AM.  Sponsorship fees are $10 for a walker who will receive entry and a T-Shirt, and $20 for a T-Shirt with sponsor’s company logo on the back.  Sponsors should make checks payable to HATT Foundation, Inc.  All donations are tax deductible.

In addition to the reforesting of Haiti, the funds HATT raises will provide clean water to the citizens of Haiti.  This will be done by building sustainable ponds throughout the nine departments in Haiti. The hope is to completely eliminate the dread disease of Cholera and provide all families with clean water. These ponds will feed into many cities and villages around the departments.
