I feel so honored to be on this team of a dozen people, travelling to Africa with World Vision. We will arrive in Livingstone, which is in the southern province of Zambia. We will then transfer to Victoria Falls where we will all run in the Victoria Falls Marathon, a world famous, international race.
If I survive the race (I'm sure the others will, but I'm 45 you know!), we wil trek hundreds of miles by jeep (nearly 1000 miles to be exact), visiting ADP's (Area Development Projects) of World Vision. We will see first-hand the devastation of a lack of clean water and the miracles of life that clean water provides.
I will also be investigating economic development and H.I.V. / A.I.D.'s relief efforts.
Here's what I want you to know from my heart. People are dying everyday by the thousands (More than 6,000 child deaths per day) becasue they do not have access to clean water. $50.00 provides clean water for a person for life! I want to make a difference. Will you help me?
