Pivoting from a physical 5K Run in Austin, Texas to an online event due to COVID-19 has meant partners are joining Whole Planet Foundation from a safe distance to alleviate poverty through microcredit around the globe.  On average, microcredit loans are less than $200 and enable low-income entrepreneurs, mostly women, to start or develop their own small businesses to support their families.  Whole Planet Foundation alleviates poverty in the United States and 76 other countries.
