MONAT Global Corp held its sixth annual More than a Race 5K in Cancun, Mexico, raising more than $25,000 for underserved youth. Proceeds will benefit the youth education grants program facilitated by MONAT’s philanthropic arm, MONAT Gratitude Foundation, along with a local nonprofit, Keeping Kids in School Project, which serves students in Mexico.
More than 3,000 MONAT distributors participated in the race.
“Every step we take in the race not only brings us closer to the finish line, but also to a brighter future for youth everywhere,” said Lu Urdaneta, MONAT Global Chief Culture Officer and MONAT Gratitude Foundation CEO. “In addition to bringing together leaders of our independent salesforce, this race serves a bigger purpose by helping improve outcomes for youth in our communities. I’m proud of our participants for doing good for themselves and the community.”
To date, the MONAT Gratitude Foundation has donated more than $600,000 to more than 40 youth education programs through a $1 million pledge grant program begun in 2022.
