BENEFITING: Water For People
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
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!
