Together, we raised more than $95,000!

Walkers all over the world came together to show the world the power of walking the Extra Mile for students and families in Guatemala! Along with coworkers, community members, friends, and family, hundreds of you joined this year’s Walk For Hope.

We showed the world the Power of Hope!
We hope you will walk with us again in 2022!

Why We Walk

We walk because less than 20% of kids graduate from high school in Guatemala. We walk to support education for students living in poverty, so that they can graduate and help end generational poverty for their family. We walk for the kids just starting school, where they will likely hold a book for the first time. We walk so families have access to quality health care. We walk to help young people dream, grow, and succeed. We walk the Extra Mile to fight poverty with diplomas!
