What is the purpose of this years Guerreros Por Guate?
Although life is different now, NHS’s objective of providing a community-based event that promotes unity and well-being remains an integral part of this year's chapter, especially during difficult times like these. Thus, the race committee hopes that families will come together throughout the month of the event—April 12th to May 16th—by finding a time to participate in an activity that also promotes physical and mental health. For those running solo, the race serves as a medium to set personal goals and challenge oneself to live a more active life, aspects that can help us cope during difficult times like the ones that we are currently in.
Where are all proceeds of the race going to?
All proceeds made from this year's event will go towards supporting Alcance Por Mi Barrio, an after-school, community-center based program for at-risk youth, and long-time NHS partner.
Will there be a prize for this years race?
Due to potential instances of cheating and miscalculating distances, there will NOT be a prize for this years top participants. However, all registrants will receive a kit including a bag, water bottle, shirt, and medal provided by our sponsors.
