THE STORY:

I am so excited to be co-chairing Team ClearWater's participation in this year's Army Ten Miler! This will be my first fundraising run and by far the longest distance I have ever run. But it's for a fantastic cause, and I appreciate everyone's support!

Our team goal this year is to fund two wells in Northern Uganda that will provide sustainable clean water for 700-800 people in need. 

ClearWater Initiative was founded in 2007 by my classmate from the Fletcher School, U.S. Army Captain, Benjamin Sklaver. Ben was deployed to Uganda to work with families who had been living in refugee camps during two decades of conflict caused by Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army in Northern Uganda. Ben saw how the lack of clean water deeply impacted communities and hindered them from rebuilding. 

After Ben was tragically killed in October 2009 while serving in Afghanistan, his family, friends, and ClearWater’s dedicated staff in Uganda and the US continued his vision of providing clean water to people in need. More than 8 million people in Uganda lack access to clean water and basic sanitation services - that’s more than five times the population of Manhattan. In the past 5 years, ClearWater has built wells, protected springs, and provided water-related education for approximately 12,000 people (2,000 families) in more than 40 rural, hard-to-reach villages in Northern Uganda. 

Each year, Team ClearWater runs the Army Ten-Miler in honor of Ben and his inspiring vision, and to raise funds for this life-saving initiative. This year's race will be particularly poignant, as October will mark the 5-year anniversary of Ben's death. 

Thank you for your support!!
