J. Portillo Running Nicaragua



J. Portillo Running Nicaragua is a running club based in Nicaragua consisting of boys and girls ages 11 to 24 years old. Members of J Portillo Running are some of the best young runners in the country, but as you can imagine they have to overcome some major financial obstacles to partake in the sport they love. Most can't afford shoes, running gear, and even vitamins. 


Kelin is Team Stride for Stride's first member outside of Boston - Miami. She is also from Nicaragua and a former member of J Portillo Running and a current member of their board. Kelin, like the runners in J Portillo Running, is a tremendous runner - she's shooting for a time of 2:45 at this year's Marine Corps Marathon in hopes of qualifying for the Nicaragua Olympic Team. 


Without generous support Kelin might not have been able to chase her dreams this fall, and without your generous support the runners of J Portillo Running might not ever discover their potential. 


Stride for Stride is hosting this fundraiser in support of the J Portillo Running Nicaragua. The dollars donated will be used to buy running shoes, gear (shorts & shirts) and vitamins for the young runners of J Portillo Running. Stride for Stride will purchase the gear and ship it to the president of the club. 


Every donation to this fundraiser is a tax-deductible donation to the Stride for Stride Foundation - a registered 501(c)(3) charity EIN: 83-2949347.


Thank you for your support,


- Tom
