BENEFITING: World Vision USA
EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2015
Hi! I'm running with Team World Vision to help provide clean water for communities in Africa. The needs are real, but we believe that we can end the clean water crisis in our lifetime. $50 = clean water for 1 person.
For children like Jessica who live in one of the poorest countries in Africa, survival requires tremendous effort; Girls and women especially spend many hours every day carrying water. Often getting to water sources that are not even safe means forgoing the ability to attend school or cultivate crops or tend businesses on which their livelihood depends.
Water changes the lives of children. They have better health, improved nutrition, and can go to school instead of spending the day fetching water. Through World Vision’s comprehensive and sustainable water projects across Africa, $50 will provide clean water for one person for a lifetime.
Providing clean safe water to every child is a solvable problem and you can help it happen! Support me in the 2015 Grete's Great Gallop Half Marathon event as I run with Team World Vision. World Vision is the largest non-government provider of clean water on the planet, reaching one new person every 30 seconds.
Just $50 provides clean water for 1 person. Will you give to provide 1, 2, 3 or more people with clean water?
