October 17, 2017

Hello Everyone!  This is the time in marathon training when we've all had just about enough...however, the marathon is still 20 days away and  See more
Patricia Evans

THE STORY:

On Sunday, November 5, 2017, I will be running the New York City Marathon for a special cause - to raise money for the Water For People Organization. This will be my  3rd NYC Marathon and 16th marathon overall. What makes this marathon particularly special is that I will be running it alongside my daughter Sarah. This will be Sarah’s first marathon. We are both so excited to be sharing this experience together and running for such a worthy cause! I was Sarah’s age when I ran my first marathon and now, 34 years later, I’m still at it! Who knew!

In 2012, Sarah spent six weeks in rural Africa working on a campaign to bring clean, safe drinking water to communities without access. Needless to say, Sarah's experience was life-changing (in many ways!). I was truly inspired by the stories she told about communities who no longer had to drink contaminated, disease-causing water, and were able to drastically improve their health through access to clean, safe drinking water. When it came time to choose a marathon fundraising organization, I was instantly drawn to Water for People, because "clean water for all" is a cause that is close to our hearts.

Water For People is an international nonprofit humanitarian organization dedicated to creating reliable, safe drinking water resources, improved sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programs in the developing world; it currently operates in 10 countries: Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, India, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Bolivia & Peru. Not everyone runs a marathon, but Water For People believes that everyone should have access to clean water and proper sanitation forever.

Your donations go directly to Water For People to finance their water and sanitation programs in Africa, India, Central America and South America-programs and are 100% tax deductible. If you would like to make your donation in honor of someone you know, I invite you to forward the names of people whom you would like me to run in honor/memory of. I will run with them in mind.

Thank you in advance for supporting Water For People.  You don’t have to be a marathon runner, but with your help, together we can help families achieve the human right to have clean water FOREVER! The ultimate finish line is a world where all people have access to clean water. We can reach it with your help.
