BENEFITING: Water For People
EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2013
Mileage Tracker: 250
I am creating two personal challenges: Conquer a marathon in my hometown city and assist in the inspiring efforts of Water For People as they bring sustainable clean water and sanitation to developing areas.
I am so excited to run in my third marathon this October, the Detroit Marathon. In so many ways, I expect this race to mean more to me than any other has. That is also why I am excited to use my training--the super early morning runs, the burning of sweat in my eyes, the blisters and more--to fundraise for an organization that I am truly honored to also get to work for. Water For People works in partnership with local districts and communities in Central and South America, Africa and India to provide sustainable clean water and sanitation solutions. Our goal is EVERYONE acheiving clean water access FOREVER. Please read more about the great work on the website at http://www.waterforpeople.org/.
Your gifts and donations will encourage me as I train through a brutally hot summer. Now, more than ever, I am aware of the "luxury" in having clean, refreshing water available at the turn of a faucet and I will run so that all can have this most basic need. Please donate--and thank you!
