WHY WE SERVE
In this brief video, learn more about why LEAP mission volunteers serve the organization and continue doing so year after year. The hours are long, the work is hard, and while they use their vacation days to serve, missions are anything but relaxing.
Dr. Candace Granberg
Urologist Dr. Candace Granberg has traveled with us to Haiti on numerous occasions. In early 2017, she started a Facebook campaign called #hammerforhaiti to raise money for LEAP with the goal of $2500 before traveling to Haiti on April 20. The plan was that if she reached that goal, she would carry the heavier hammer in the fall Hammer Race.
Chris & Emma Lamon
Father/daughter duo Chris and Emma Lamon traveled with us to Haiti in October 2017. The Lamon family has been very involved with LEAP for years with three generations of support spanning across our Mission and Landmark programs.
Scott Porter is a local photographer who has traveled with us on missions to Haiti and Belize.
