The Alliance for Progress of Education in Guanacaste said that a May 3 foot race that attracted more than 300 participants raised $25,000.
The alliance is a nonprofit partnership of Abriendo Mentes, Amigos de la Educación, Culture, Education and Psychology for Infants and Adolescents and the La Paz Community School. The alliance members share the proceeds.
Thanks to race organizers Global Sportx Group and more than 70 community volunteers, race day went off without a hitch, and the runners enjoyed a beautiful early morning run through Flamingo and Potrero, said an announcement. There were distances of five and 10 kilometers.
