Running Raises $140,000 for Entrepreneurs

Aug 28, 2017 2:00 PM ET

Thank you to our friends who ran a Virtual 10K with us from August 3-7 this year. The combined impact of our $10,000 Fund partners, runners, Whole Foods Market® Team Members, virtual runners and more, this year added up to $140,000 raised for impoverished women all over the world to start their own businesses. That equals about 748 average first microloans! Our team was thrilled to celebrate the second year of the Virtual 10K Run, adding a fun run in Austin, Texas and partnering with our sponsors to create excitement in cities all over the USA.  We hope you’ll run with us again next year to create more opportunities for those who are living in poverty in our 70 project countries.
