Team GIVE WTR is about changing lives. We run/jog/walk to provide clean water to people in desperate need in developing nations. You will make a real difference in the world when you run a race with Team GIVE WTR by raising money to provide clean water to villages in Africa, India, and Central America through With This Ring.
Since 2007 With This Ring, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Southern California has been drilling wells throughout the world providing tens of thousands of families with clean drinking water. The message of With This Ring is simple - Give Radically can change the world radically.
For Team GIVE WTR, the time, energy and passion you invest in training for and running a full marathon, half marathon, or 5K is the sacrifice that inspires your friends and family to donate to a worthy cause - Clean Water!
World Water Crisis
1 billion people in the world drink dirty water every day, because it is all they have and they need water to survive. But dirty water and poor sanitation are killing them.
4,200 children die each day from dirty water.
Infections from poor sanitation and hygiene affect 2 billion people.
3.75 million people die each year from water-related causes.
Half of all hospital beds in the world are filled with people suffering from water-related diseases
The money you raise helps fund water projects in Africa, India, and Central America.
When you dedicate your race to helping communities in Africa, India, and Central America get access to clean water, you help provide hope and a future to people in desperate need and you inspire your friends and loved ones.
