BENEFITING: Charity: Water
EVENT DATE: Dec 11, 2013
Can you imagine having to walk miles in order to drink a glass of water? What if the water that you have walked so far to find is the same water shared with local live stock, the color of the earth, and full of bacteria? This is the norm for overwhelming majority of Tanzania. Something that we take for granted everyday is a struggle for these communities. I will be raising funds for charity : water. Charitywater.org is a grass roots movement created to supply this crucial resource to people in developing countries around the world, including Tanzania.
The purpose of RISE ABOVE is to raise awareness of the struggles that are present in the communities surrounding the titans that are the seven summits. Among the serene landscape of the seven summits lies a very real void of the basic necessities for survival and progress. RISE ABOVE is an opportunity to give back the communities that allow us to share in their beauty and live in their inspiration.
