Hello Beautiful people:  I'm only two weeks away from the biggest challenge of my life. I just wanted to take this time and thank you all for  See more

BENEFITING: Generosity Global Inc

Sophie Gamy

THE STORY:

I am excited to raise funds on behalf of Generosity Global, to support their mission to bring access to clean drinking water to people in remote villages in Cameroon, Africa. Generosity Global is non-profit organization committed to using the power of generosity to positively impact people, by providing access to clean drinking water to people in developing countries and helping people in the homeless community become self-sufficient. Growing up in Conakry, Guinea, (West Africa), I know first-hand the daily struggles some people endure to gain access to clean water. To be honest, this truly never seemed to be of much significance to me until I came to the USA. You are pretty much oblivious to the fact that you live in extreme poverty and do not have access to basic needs like clean drinking water. After discovering Generosity Global, I immediately fell in love with the idea of being able to make a difference with something most people take for granted. Children and parents walk miles and miles to gain access to clean water, so I thought what better way to honor those individuals than to delicate my marathon to raise awareness. I am asking that you join hands with me in raising $2,000 which will be donated to help drill wells for clean water. No donation is too big or too small and if we exceed that amount, I am certain that thousands more of less fortunate people in Cameroon will be forever grateful. As you know, Running is my passion. I run because it’s not only my passion, but my sanctuary and because I WANT and I LOVE to. People in Cameroon do not have the luxury of choosing to walk/run miles upon miles simply for leisure. For this reason, each and every mile I take will be dedicated to them. I’ve ran many races before, but this, by far, is the most fulfilling race I look forward to running on October 30, 2016. Not only is this the first time that I have ever ran a marathon, this is the first time I’ve actually ever felt connected to the cause. For me this is personal. Help me reach my goal and let’s bring access to clean water to the children and parents of those less fortunate than we are. Your encouragement and support will definitely be appreciated. Together #wecanchangethestory Give with your heart, Sophie
