On Sunday, May 21, I'm going to jog for the second time(!) the Colfax half-marathon in Denver. Highlight - it's mostly flat! Lowlight - it's 13 long miles.
However, the 2.5 hours I'll spend on this course is less time than millions of women and girls spend walking to get water for their families each day. Water For People, a great non-profit organization that coincidentally I work for, is working to provide water and sanitation to Everyone Forever. This year, Water For People is celebrating its 25th anniversary - 25 years of hard work and more importantly - 1.5 million people with access to safe water and nearly 830,000 with reliable sanitation through Water For People's programs. Support my run and help Water For People reach even more people with safe water and improved sanitation. I hope to raise $1300 - $100 for each mile. It might be a tough run for me, but it's a tougher walk every day for those who don't have water. Thanks!
