BENEFITING: Water For People

EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011

Carola Lovering

THE STORY:

On November 6, Maren Rhodin and I will be running the US Half Marathon in San Francisco. We are running to raise money for Water For People, a non-profit organization that works to build a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and sanitation, and where no one suffers or dies from a water or sanitation-related disease. To one in seven people worldwide, getting water is backbreaking, life-threatening work. And drinking that water will likely make them sick, or die.

We are running to help Water For People in the Donate to Drink $2 Million Challenge. Several donors have pledged $1 million and challenged Water For People to raise another $1 million. Water For People has until October 31, 2011 to meet this goal of $1 million, and we need your help!

This cause is extremely important to us. For every $1000 we can raise, we get another chance to win a trip for two to join a volunteer expedition to Rwanda in 2012.

Additionally, there are some great gifts:
• $25 gets you a bracelet made in Rwanda.
• $100 earns a stainless steel water bottle from Marmot Mountain.

Thank you for any donation you can make to help with this cause- even the smallest amount helps!

So proud of you Maren and Carola, you guys are changing the world, no matter how small. Tribute to all the remaining clean water in the world, that isn't in the icecaps. In honor of my inspiration to join you guys next year (damn ACL...), Grandma Katherine Beiers (hopefully she will join too). 6 years ago
