At Casa de Corazón

we are 1k for kids

International Impact

At Casa de Corazón®, part of our mission is to provide socially responsible education to our children. One way we achieve this is by interacting and connecting with our surrounding communities through building partnerships and encouraging participation in our annual 1K For Kids event. We invite you to join us in this adventure as we continue our intercultural learning outside of the classroom!

2024 1K For Kids

Join us for the 1K For Kids event in 2024, where hope awaits us at every turn. This beacon of hope and generosity has, over the last 8 years, united more than 5,000 participants in Minnesota and Wisconsin. It has impacted over 320 families and children across countries such as the Dominican Republic, Peru, Guatemala, Colombia, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and the United States. With the unwavering support of our families, sponsors, volunteers, and educators, we have contributed more than $139,000 to vital causes and the esteemed Mayo Clinic, making a tangible difference in the lives of those in need.

This year, we aim to extend our reach to the children of Nicaragua in partnership with NPH Nicaragua and NPH USA. These organizations are dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable children in Latin America and the Caribbean through housing, health, and educational programs. By joining us, you become part of a global effort to nurture the potential of every child, offering them a brighter future. Let’s come together for the greater good, making 2024 a landmark year for philanthropy. Your participation, in any form, is the cornerstone of this transformative journey. Together, we can create a ripple of change, one step at a time.

Benefited Families

“The construction and installation of the play area has contributed significantly to the integral development of the boys and girls of our Centro de Bienestar Infantil (CBI). It favors the development of the gross psychomotor area of each boy and girl, contributing to socialization and companionship.”

– Jeamileth Marroquín Arriola

“Hosting representatives from Casa de Corazón brings immense joy to us in El Salvador, as it allows them to immerse themselves and understand the reality of the children and the home. They must see firsthand how their contributions are being invested in the well-being of the children.”

– Nora Serrano, National Director of NPH El Salvador

“Casa de Corazón has become a key ally for NPH México, providing unparalleled support since 2022 through a variety of activities, renovations, and memorable movie nights for our youth. Their contribution goes beyond material aid; they have given us friendship and unconditional love for our children and youth. Through events like the 1K For Kids event, Casa de Corazón unites communities with the noble goal of supporting children.”

– Daniel, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos México

“On behalf of the entire NPH Organization and the children we are privileged to care for, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to you (Jansel) and Casa de Corazón! Your amazing support and partnership will truly help transform lives through the gift of education. On behalf of these children, I cannot be more grateful! I hope to have the opportunity in Minnesota (or in one of our homes) to meet and express my gratitude in person.”

– John Deinhart

“Your support allows us to treat patients, educate the next generation of medical leaders and conduct lifesaving research for the benefit of people everywhere. On behalf of patients near and far as well as the Mayo Clinic staff who work tirelessly to transform innovative ideas into reality, thank you for advancing hope — hope for scientific breakthroughs, for revolutionary treatments, and ultimately, for healing.”

– Mayo Clinic

“Vivimos con mi hermana y sus tres hijos, vivimos muy apretados. Nos gusta que los niños se diviertan y jueguen, pero últimamente se enferman mucho por el contacto con la tierra mojada del suelo de la Casa.  Ahora podrán jugar dentro de la nueva vivienda con un piso seguro gracias a Casa de Corazón.”

– Family Barranco Llanos, Techo Colombia Team

“Thank you Casa de Corazón! Special thanks to the volunteers, families, sponsors, performing artists, and key members of the Casa de Corazón Community, that worked together to raise the funds in 2018, at the 1K for Kids, for TECHO- Guatemala with $17,672.38. You all contributed to the build of the homes for 12 of the families that had lost everything at the volcano eruption.”

– Ana Maria Duque, Director of Community Experience at TECHO US

“Casa de Corazón nos ha ayudado a promover una sociedad justa y sin pobreza en el Perú!”

– Patricia L. Tatis, CEO at TECHO US

“The founder of Quiéreme como soy (Love me as I am) Oscar Villanueva sends this greeting all the way from the Dominican Republic for the Casa de Corazón families that will attend our 1K for Kids event in July!”

– Oscar Villanueva, CEO at Quiéreme Como Soy Dominican Republic
