THE STORY:

Hi All,

 

Thanks for taking a few minutes to read about the fundraising campaign for the ClearWater Initiative project.

 

My name is Josefina Casals, I am a Chilean lawyer and a graduate student at New York University. I am a big fan of outdoor sports, specially running and biking; in fact, my main transport systems within NYC are my feet and my beloved foldable bike. Although my studies are very time consuming, I go for a running or jogging as soon as I have a chance: it is a great way to relax and clear my mind.

 

Those who know me back home are aware that I love running events! I have been in several races in Chile and a few ones since I moved to NYC. I do not go there to compete (I am just an amateur runner with a medium-to-low pace) but for the great feeling of doing a benefit to my physical and mental health. Moreover, the positive energy that flows around this kind of group activities is a balm for the spirit.

 

However, I never run for the benefit of third parties so far. This year, I will have the chance and the honor of running for an extraordinary project that is already improving the life of thousands of people in northern Uganda. I will run the 2013 NYC Half Marathon on March 17, for helping people that have no access to one of the most basic needs: a source of clear and potable water.

 

ClearWater Initiative (www.clearwaterinitiative.org) is a nongovernmental organization founded in 2007 by Benjamin Sklaver, a U.S. military that served in Uganda. During his service, he was a first-hand witness of the poor life conditions of Ugandan population. He decided to transform their lives for better and for good.

 

ClearWater promotes simple, sustainable solutions for the provision of clear water, such as borehole repairs, protected springs, and well drilling, with an emphasis on community involvement and relevant training.

 

So far, ClearWater has helped 13,000 people, and it expects to impact in the life of more than 50,000 in 2013.

 

Now, you and I can be part of this change. Our common efforts can contribute to give Ugandan people a better life and better health conditions through the construction of four new wells. Our contribution will help to reduce waterborne diseases in children and in vulnerable sectors. Any donation, as little or big will allow Ugandan people to resettle in conflicted areas, and to give villagers a new sense of community.

We will run together on this. And just remember when you are drinking a big, cold glass of fresh water, that someone in northern Uganda can have the same now, all because of your help.

 

Thanks for your cooperation!
