We need your help to build Green Door homes
In 2010, Jason & Lindy Pieratt invited a group of friends from Rockwall to visit Children’s Relief International’s project in Mozambique. The team set a goal to raise funds for the trip and to construct a Green Door home ($3,200 at the time). With much excitement, the group hosted the First Annual Green Door Race. With 80+ runners and 30+ volunteers, the race was a hit. The team raised enough funds to travel to Mozambique and build a Green Door home.
The race’s impact on the homeless of Mozambique prompted the group to host the race the following year! Nobody thought we’d host the Green Door Race for the next 12 years and be building homes around the world, but here we are!
It would not be possible without the support from friends of CRI and the running community around the DFW metroplex.
We are thankful that you have joined us. Have confidence that your participation helps those in deep poverty.
See you at the race!
