    Why Donate

    Your donations in Micah’s memory can help the Raramuri of the Copper Canyons in their daily lives. Donations go directly to Norawas de Raramuri, a nonprofit organization started by Micah True and Mas Locos to support the Raramuri way of life.

    Aside from the Caballo Blanco Ultra Marathon, we will lead community projects that celebrate and promote the Raramuri culture and help the people get easier access to water, crops and other necessities.

    In the coming days, we will link to various other projects and activities led by Mas Locos to fund our important work in the Canyons. Kuira Ba!

    Great !!!

    Ánimo compañeros !!! Desde España os animamos e intentaremos hacernos eco de vuestro evento.

    Qué os parece si nos enviáis aquello que podamos publicar en nuestro capítulo? Algunos de nuestros amigos ya han corrido en otros años y es posible que alguien de España está pensando en ir hasta allá para disfrutar de la carrera y de gente tan maravillosa como vosotros.

    Un abrazo hermanos !!!
