Please Join Us! Bounce Back Better Fund-Racer

What is it?

The Bounce Back Better Fund-Racer is a fundraiser challenging you to complete a virtual “marathon” of exercise, spread over 2 weeks, to support Gracia and its Mujeres Fuertes (“Strong Women”).

The marathon is NOT limited to running!  Almost anyone can participate – everything from walking, to gardening, to weightlifting can all count toward your miles!

It’s really easy, you install the Racery App and load your activities as you go. Tracking your progress against other racers & seeing messages from our team in Guatemala is FUN!

The virtual course is set in Jalapa, Guatemala where Gracia works.

How did ‘Bounce Back Better’ come about?

Last year, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gracia witnessed an incredible feat of resiliency from the Mujeres Fuertes. Despite multiple challenges, the strong women of Gracia were navigate their way to success.  The Mujeres Fuertes located a new workshop, fulfilled all outstanding jewelry orders, and designed a stunning collection of new jewelry.

Despite these efforts, Gracia donations and jewelry sales continue to lag behind pre-pandemic levels.  For our 2021 fund-racer, we wanted to highlight the success of the Mujeres Fuertes but also ask your continued support. Please help us Bounce Back Better!

All profits raised during this event will directly benefit the Mujeres Fuertes and help cover the cost of the GET program

 Thank you!
