Brett Freedman's Fundraiser:

2011 Team ClearWater Runs the Army Ten-Miler

THE STORY:

In August of 2001, I met Benjamin Sklaver during orientation. We were both incoming students in the class of 2003 at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. His infectious laugh and sense of humor led us to quickly become close friends.

The consummate humanitarian, Ben decided to serve his country, in both the military and as a federal employee. In 2009, Ben was serving in Afghanistan for the Army when he was tragically killed by a suicide bomber. Ben's legacy lives on through the ClearWater Initiative, an organization he started in 2007 to provide clean water to populations affected by natural or man-made humanitarian emergencies.

Today, ClearWater is growing, assisted by his family, friends, and a dedicated group of individuals passionate about the cause. Within 10 years ClearWater will provide clean water to 250,000 people in need.

Please consider donating, your assistance will go far in enabling ClearWater to continue to expand its reach and help those in dire need of its services.

ClearWater does a lot with a little, so give a little or give a lot. It all makes a difference. Each of us can make a difference. Clearwater Initiative wrote -

**Please note: if you are supporting our runners with a gift of $500 or more, please mail a check to ClearWater Initiative, P.O. Box 1684, New Haven, CT 06507**

Join Team ClearWater in our efforts to raise $20,000 by October 9, 2011! A group of dedicated volunteers and runners will pound out the Army Ten-Miler race in Washington, DC to raise funds for ClearWater, enabling us to expand our footprint in Uganda.

ClearWater Initiative is dedicated to promoting simple, sustainable solutions for the provision of clean water to populations in need. ClearWater funds both established and innovative clean water solutions, such as borehole repairs, protected springs and well drilling, with an emphasis on community mobilization and training. ClearWater currently operates in northern Uganda.
