Thank you from Project Haiti 2014!Our Fourth Annual Project Haiti 5K was held on UF’s campus on Saturday, August 24, 2013 at 8 am.

We truly appreciate the support we received for Project Haiti from the UF and Gainesville communities, and especially from our UF College of Medicine faculty members and our classmates. Thank you all for braving the August weather to come out to race!

All proceeds from the race will go to support Project Haiti’s mission to provide ongoing medical support to struggling communities and individuals in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The funds we raise are used for medical supplies, essential medicines, and on-the-ground team needs. Everything we do not use on our trip is donated to the organization we work with on the ground, which provides year round support and care.

Race Photos

We have created a free Shutterfly album of photos taken by Project Haiti team members before, during, and after today’s race. The password for the album is PH2014.

We apologize that there aren’t photos of every participant- something we’ll change for next year! However, we hope that you will enjoy the photos and they should be free to download. Please let us know if you have any questions or if you have any photos that we can add! Thank you.
