Run. Walk. Ride.

What is ImpactNOW?

ImpactNOW is a covid-safe, family-friendly fundraising event that will support the projects of ImpactHope while encouraging people to actively participate in making an impact right where they are!

At ImpactHope, we believe that we are more than an Organization; we are a MOVEMENT of people who are committed to actively participating in the mission of Jesus Christ by announcing the good news, strengthening communities, and bringing hope to the most vulnerable and oppressed. 

We will walk, run, or bike in solidarity to call attention to those whose lives have been affected by poverty, exploitation, oppression and injustice. Individuals have the opportunity to participate by themselves, in pairs, or on a team!

If you are interested in leading an ImpactNOW event in your local community, please get in touch with us!

  • The objective of the event is to fundraise for ImpactHope’s projects and to create opportunities for individuals to personally participate and get involved in making an impact.
  • The benefits of this event to the Organization would be the funds raised to help our current projects as well as increase ImpactHope’s reach of community participation.

Born to Run: We did it!

We ran over 10 km and raised above $3,000 for Casa Compasiva!

We did it!! We completed our first ‘Born to Run’ race on Sunday and, with your help, raised over $3,000 for Casa Compasiva! This could be used to purchase the sterilization machine we need or provide scholarships to several needy mothers for birth care with us, or help get our Midwife and Doulas training program up and going.  We will be very careful and focused on how we put your money to work for families in Oaxaca.  We couldn’t be prouder of how many people turned up to support this cause and enjoy some fun family and community time together. You, and so many more like you, truly make a difference in the lives of vulnerable families in Oaxaca.
