Race 4 OYE


Since 2010, OYE supporters have organized Race 4 OYE events all over the country, capitalizing on their love for running to promote social good and raise thousands of dollars to support OYE’s mission.

Race 4 OYE provides an opportunity for athletes to run – whether it is a 5K Fun Run or the New York Marathon – and raise money and awareness for OYE’s scholarship program, which currently provides over 100 high school and university scholarships to disadvantaged youth in El Progreso each year. Most recently, three Race 4 OYE efforts raised over $9,000 for OYE, the equivalent of 16 scholarships.
