Dorn Wenninger- Keynote Speaker

AMIGOS alumnus 1984-1986 and 1988-1989
2018 World Marathon Challenge finisher

Dorn literally ran around the world for AMIGOS. He completed the World Marathon Challenge in February 2018 raising $60,000 for AMIGOS and awareness about our mission and programs. 

Competitors run 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days! This unprecedented logistical and physical test has been completed by less than 100 people worldwide. Dorn will share highlights from his experience and  explain why he was inspired to undertake this challenge for AMIGOS.

The Breakfast will raise awareness about AMIGOS programs, mobilize support and expand financial assistance for under-resourced applicants. We want all youth to have the opportunity to participate in AMIGOS. To make this a reality, we need your help. Attend the Breakfast, become a sponsor or make a donation today.

OUR FIRST BREAKFAST BENEFIT WAS A SUCCESS!

The first Breakfast to Benefit AMIGOS on October 18, 2017 raised over $37,000. The funds expanded financial assistance awards for 2018 Houston area youth participants and supported AMIGOS programs.

AMIGOS students positively impact their host communities and return home with greater leadership skills, a higher sense of purpose and better understanding of collaborative community service.We will continue to empower young leaders in Houston and look forward to sharing their inspiring stories with you.
