Jul 23, 2019

The city of Miami and members of Venezuela's opposition will host a 5k run this Sunday to support humanitarian efforts led by opposition leader Juan Guaido.

Mayor Francis Suarez announced the "Running for Freedom" race yesterday.

They will raise funds to send medical supplies and medicine to Venezuela, which has already been dealing with food and medical shortages.

More than 50 other countries, including the Trump administration, recognize Guaido as Venezuela's interim president. Meanwhile — socialist leader Nicolas Maduro has blocked the delivery of humanitarian aid.

Officials are aiming for 2,000 people to participate in the run on Sunday.
