Guatemala! Our next trip to serve, run and experience culture!

You can join us in Guatemala in May of 2012!  We are coordinating an adventure, service and culture experience centered around the Lake Altitlan marathon. ADVENTURE, CULTURE, SERVICE
Start small, dream big, change the world.

This is the first of several ‘fact sheets’ about our up coming trip to Guatemala.
 We will enjoy the festivities coordinated around the Lake Atitlan marathon.
Then go to Chichicastenango where we will  provide a number of services.  These could include: building a widows home (or two) providing a external vented cooking and heating stove to needy families, a sports camp for the village children, medical clinic.

This is being coordinated by Don and Lisa Buxman through their non profit AID IN ACTION.  Check out the marathon website at and where we will be staying while at the lake.
 Approximate expenses are as follows. Flight from Denver to Guatemala City on May 24 or 25 (depending on how many will be running the half marathon on the 26th) $700.  Room in Antigua with breakfast $25.00.(one night)  Rooms at the lake $30.00 per person, 3 nights.  Four more nights in Chichi with food 40.00 per person.   Just about $1000.  Plus food at the lake, other outings, like the zip line, sight seeing, volcano trek and shopping at the famous market in Chichi.

We would like to have our first planning meeting the first part of January.  So if you are even just a little bit interested let us know and we will make sure to let you know about the meeting!
