BENEFITING: Water For People
EVENT DATE: May 31, 2015
Dad & I look forward to participating and running in San Diego's Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon in honor of a great cause!
Water For People brings together local entrepreneurs, civil society, governments, and communities to establish creative, collaborative solutions that allow people to build and maintain their own reliable and sustainable safe water systems. This is especially ever more important in emerging market countries, where potable water is scarce or not easily accessible, and where poverty and water-borne illnesses are in the extremes.
*884,000,000 people around the world do not have access to safe drinking water.
*An average African woman walks 4 hours a day to collect dirty water.
*3,575,000 people die each year from water related disease.
Please support us in our endeavor either through a charitable donation, or, by fostering awareness and education regarding this significant cause! [...It's a little ways off, we know, but we are excited to get the ball rolling early]
