Run for Roots is a program of Roots of Hope, Inc. We are an international network of over 4,000 members across the U.S. and abroad focused on empowering Cuban youth. We seek to inspire young people to care about Cuba, think outside the box and proactively support our young counterparts on the island through innovative means. In 2003, we were founded by college students as an association between the Georgetown and Harvard Cuban American student groups. Today, we encompass a dynamic and diverse group of young servant leaders throughout the U.S. with students at more than 55 universities and post graduate networks in Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago, Madrid, London, and Miami. We hope to make a positive impact on the Cuban people through initiatives guided by three basic principles: love, friendship and hope.
