Excited to introduce our newest activity at LOVE Takes Root. The Roots Runners.
LOVE Takes Root (LTR) is a non-profit organization dedicated to cultivating the future of children worldwide. We help children around the world facing dire circumstances by delivering basic aid, education and the seeds for a sustainable future. In 2011, we were called to Haiti where we have relocated and rebuilt an orphanage reduced to rubble by the 2010 earthquake. For sustainability, we have also built a primary school, medical/dental clinic, and are presently building a secondary school.
LOVE Takes Root is an Iowa-based volunteer-led grassroots organization that embraces Iowan values of hard work, neighborliness, and compassion. We encourage you to join us in our mission by becoming a Roots Runner and joining a dedicated group of givers who pound the pavement, raising funds for our mission while training for and racing a half-marathon or marathon.
