Run for the Rainforest

"30 students from Hudson High School in Hudson MA, accompanied by three teachers prepare each year to spend 10 days in the Peruvian Amazon. This is a year-long process. Students begin this journey in their World Cultures classroom as 30 strangers who may attend the same school but do not really know one another. They may be following each other on Twitter, or be friends on Facebook, but they may never have shared more than a few words with each other in conversation. That will all change. This journey is about creating connections, with each other, with themselves and with the unfamiliar. Together students will design and deliver programming to the second graders at one of our district elementary schools on the rainforest, make presentations to local civic organizations soliciting support for their travel and they will manage the Suitcase Project a community wide service initiative to bring school and medical necessities to rural villages in the Peruvian Amazon. Rather than be overwhelmed by a To Do list of items, students are encouraged to embrace each activity as a learning opportunity. Once in Peru they will visit communities and work collectively with local residents on projects identified as necessary; be that digging latrines, repainting a community center or planting a garden. Upon returning to Hudson students will host a Peru Night for family and community members, during which time they will share the “moments” that made lasting impressions on them during the journey. The Run for the Rainforest is the first fundraiser Peru Crew does each year and CustomInk is our go to t-shirt provider." - Peru Crew 16 (Oct 21, 2015)
