Thank you to our friends who ran a Virtual 10K with us from August 3-7 this year. The combined impact of our $10,000 Fund partners, runners, Whole Foods Market® Team Members and other supporters this year added up to $140,000 raised for impoverished women all over the world to start their own businesses. That equals about 748 average first microloans!
Our team was thrilled to celebrate the second year of the Virtual 10K Run, adding a fun run here in Austin (see photo below) and partnering with our sponsors to create excitement in cities all over the USA.
Congratulations to runners and those who entered online to win prizes from our sponsors. Winners have been notified and can also be found on the sweepstakes rules page. Hope you’ll run with us again next year to create more opportunities for those who are living in poverty in our 69 project countries.
And while we’re giving thanks, we’d also love to thank this year’s sponsors, who helped make this event a success:
