Thanks for visiting my page
The NYC Half Marathon will be my first Half Marathon. It was a personal goal I set myself but was thrilled at the chance to run, raise money, and create awareness for ClearWater Initiative .
ClearWater's mission is to provide sustainable sources of clean water to communities in northern Uganda. Less than 60% of people in this region have access to clean water within two kilometers of their home. ClearWater Initiative addresses this need through the construction of wells and protected springs along with sanitation, hygeine and water source maintenance training.
ClearWater's projects reduce disease and time spent in search of clean water - often up to 6 hours per day - and provide villagers with the skills and training to lead healthier and more productive lives.
Having lived my childhood in this area, I understand what it means to have access to Clean Water and I am happy to have this opporunity to raise awareness and money. Every penny donated will go a long way to help out a family in need.
Many Thanks in advance for donating :)
