MURFREESBORO, Tenn.- A group of Murfreesboro teens are continuing their fight against starvation in third world country by holding a costumed fun run.
The teens from the nonprofit called SAVE-- which stands for Saving a Village Everyday are trying to keep a village in Haiti fed. That of course takes money and they are hoping some runners with a sense of humor will help them.
SAVE is hosting a 5k fun run in Murfreesboro on July 28. Organizers are hoping that participants will wear their favorite costume as they pound the pavement for charity. A $25 donation will all go toward the Boukeran Village in Haiti where malnutrition and starvation are an unfortunate way of life. The teens that started SAVE visited the village in May and it only inspired them to continue to serve those in need.
"We realized that there is more to the world that just Murfreesboro, Tennessee and we wanted to branch out and do something bigger than just ourselves so we've made some really cool relationships," said Taylor Cochran, SAVE Creator.
The run will take place Sunday, July 28 at 7pm at Gateway Island.
