Create a Personal Campaign Page for MWWH and be eligible for prizes!

May 20, 2019

Create a Personal Campaign Page for Maine Walks with Haiti and become eligible for prizes, including a cruise of the picturesque Casco Bay and an overnight stay at one of Portland’s top hotels! The 10th annual Maine Walks with Haiti will be held at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, June 8, at Portland’s Back Cove Park, and we have made it easier than ever before to participate and raise pledges.

Click here to create a Personal Campaign Page. You will receive a link to your PCP that you can share with friends, family, and colleagues, and they can pledge money to Konbit Sante in your name. You can also enable a tracker that will allow you to see how much progress you’ve made toward achieving your fundraising goal. You don’t need to register for MWWH to create a Personal Campaign Page. If you prefer to raise funds without participating in the walk/run, we are happy to have your support!

If you prefer to go old-school, a print-ready pledge page can be found here. Simply return the pledge page at the registration booth during Maine Walks with Haiti, or mail to our Maine office: 362 US Route 1, Falmouth ME 04105.

Prizes will be awarded to those who raise the most money via pledges, and to those who get the greatest number of pledges. The prizes include:

  • An overnight stay at Homewood Suites by Hilton in Portland, including breakfast, a light evening meal (Monday-Thursday), and an indoor heated pool and jacuzzi. ($199 value)
  • A 3-hour Mailboat Run cruise for two aboard the Casco Bay Lines Ferry Terminal, departing from Portland and visiting Little Diamond, Great Diamond, Long, Cliff, and Chebeague Islands ($33 value)
  •  Lightweight Haitian metal art handcrafted from recycled oil drums and suitable for hanging ($25 to $150 value)

To celebrate 10 years of Maine Walks with Haiti, we’re featuring a special performance by Pihcintu, a Portland-based multicultural choral group of girls and young women that has performed all over the state and nationally, including at the United Nations and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Many of Pihcintu’s members are refugees from war-torn countries, and the group sings songs of hope, love, and coming together. We thought their music was a perfect fit for this year’s theme, “Building Bridges,” and we are very excited to have them on board.

There will also be food and Haitian metal art for purchase, as well as face-painting for children. Walkers are invited to participate for free, and the timed run will include prizes. To register to run, click here.

Please join us at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, June 8, at Back Cove Park in Portland for the 10th annual Maine Walks with Haiti 5K. Together, we can continue to strengthen capacity for a healthier Haiti as we work together in this konbit.
