Great Lakes Friends of Safe Passage are sponsoring the 2nd annual Run for Safe Passage, Esperanza 5K. Similar events to raise funds for Safe Passage are being planned in other cities across the U.S. and Europe, as well as in Guatemala, where Safe Passage operates.  The 5K course covers varied terrain including trails through wooded areas. The 1mile course is paved.  Walkers as well as competitive runners are encouraged to participate.  Refreshments and a Guatemalan arts and crafts sale will follow the race. Individual pre-registration is $25; $30 on race day. Safe Passage is a US-based non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope and opportunity to the children of the Guatemala City garbage dump community. http://tinyurl.com/esperanza5k for more info and to register.
