We cordially invite you to consider sponsoring our 2nd Annual Run for Your HIPPY Heart Virtual 5k. At their own pace, this event gives participants a great opportunity to walk, jog, run and enjoy outdoors. If they prefer to stay inside, a treadmill is just fine. The fee ranges from $15 to $85 based on age and includes a rate for families. Each participant will receive a medal and a HIPPY water bottle while supplies last.
This fundraiser comes at a time when we are grappling with unexpected change and adaptation in how we deliver our once in-person services. As the national office, HIPPY USA guides,supports, and ensures that our 120 affiliates across the nation are equipped and in the best position to meet the needs of our 14,000 families amid this public health crisis.
HIPPY is an evidenced base dearly learning program,addressing the achievement gap by supporting parents in their critical role as their child’s first and most influential teacher. In the HIPPY, peer home visitors deliver 30 weeks of high-quality school readiness curriculum directly to parents who then work with their own 2 to 5 year-old children. Using the HIPPY books and curriculum,parents spend one-on-one time each day reading books with their children and teaching them school-readiness skills. In today’s environment, our model has been adapted into a virtual one to continue our mission of serving families and making young learners school-ready.
