ABOUT STRIDES FOR SUSTAINABILITY CAMPAIGN
Ready for Summer? Us too! In partnership with SELF, rural Honduran leaders are making strides in their communities every day. Since 2017, together we continue to succeed in building water projects, planting trees, establishing microenterprises and gaining valuable education, working towards self-sustaining leadership. You can make their strides go further! Join us during the month of July for an all new SELF event, Strides for Sustainability. Strides is a month-long initiative that promotes community, global citizenship and movement with a purpose. What's our goal? We know that the impact of one person multiplied can move us forward together. From July 1 - July 31, we would like our combined strides to total 3 million strides, enough to circle the perimeter of Honduras! Who can participate? Anyone! Individuals or groups are encouraged. We would love for community groups to participate together! This event is similar to a step challenge or move goal - but with even more ways to participate! What is a stride? A stride can be almost anything! Any activity that gets you moving counts toward our stride goal. Examples of strides include…
If you aren’t able to move, you can still be a part of our global community by donating towards our goal. However you take strides in your own life will help us in supporting Honduran communities! Why should you sign up? As a global citizen, your strides make a deep and lasting impact in the lives of Honduran families.
