The Every Child Matters 5K Run/Walk is a major fundraiser of Children of the Caribbean Foundation. The proceeds fund the charity's Education Initiative that benefits children in Los Angeles and across the Caribbean. The association of Children of the Caribbean Foundation, Justine Pasek and ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water for the 3rd Annual Run/Walk is the ideal collaboration where "all things work together for good." ZICO, according to the company "climbed the coconut tree for you" and brings to the run/walk the natural hydration with 5 electrolytes and as much potassium as a banana. The coconut and its many uses is a part of the culture of the Caribbean people. Justine, originally from Panama shares a similar history, culture and ethnicity with the people of the Caribbean.
On March 9th, 2013, Children of the Caribbean Foundation, Justine Pasek and ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water, will create a transnational community that will embrace the Caribbean diaspora overseas, and provide a fun and healthy way to change the lives of generations of young children in poverty. School shoes, backpacks filled with dictionaries, calculators, notebooks and other essential supplies will be purchased with the funds from the Every Child Matters Run/Walk. Over the Summer, these supplies will be distributed to children who otherwise would go without.
