Run for Water Society is a non-profit organization which raises money for clean water projects in Ethiopia. For the 11th year, Envision Financial Run for Water is hosting a multi-distance race event, including Half Marathon, 10k Run, and 5k Fun Run. When you register to run, you have the option of running solo, or creating a team to run together.
The average person in North America is only 5 seconds away from clean water...the average person in Ethiopia is a 5 hour walk away from water.
This shouldn't be. BUT YOU CAN CHANGE THIS.
100% of the money raised by donating and fundraising goes directly into the communities to provide them with clean water and quality primary education. This means that girls no longer have to go on very long and laborious daily journeys in search of contaminated water. With access to safe, clean, drinking water, kids in the village can go to school, mothers can start businesses, fathers can water their crops, and children no longer die of waterborne diseases.
THIS YEAR DON’T JUST RUN, RAISE for the community of Jemjem!
