On Saturday May 11, RPCV/W supported the BEST Kids 5K Race and Kids' Fun Run.
BEST Kids is a local organization that seeks to promote better futures for youth in the District of Columbia’s child welfare system by developing and supporting one-on-one mentoring relationships between the youth and caring, consistent adults. Six volunteers from RPCV/W were at Hains Point to hand out water at 7 am, which helped the runners and walkers through the hot day. After the race, RPCV/W volunteers enjoyed a brunch celebrating the morning.
