THE STORY:

Greetings!! My name is Peggy Olivia Neal and I am a proud wife and mother, life-long community volunteer, full-time student, small business owner, avid gardener and athlete. 

On November 5th, I will be running in the NYC marathon as a Charity Runner for the amazing organization Water for People! I am one of only 14 members of Team Water for People, training hard for the marathon while raising funds to help eradicate water poverty around the world. The 26.2 miles that we will run on race day will mirror the distances that many women and children travel just to find suitable water for drinking, bathing, and cooking for their families.

The world-wide water crisis effects children the most. Children are often more susceptible to water-borne diseases, some even die from preventable illnesses like diarrhea. As a mother, the thought of little children dying simply because they have no access to safe water is truly heartbreaking! My heart aches with the thought of another mother having to endure the loss of a child. 

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. In each region, Water for People works hard to form partnerships with state and local governments, entrepreneurs, NGOs, districts, and municipalities to plan, build, finance, maintain, and operate their own safe water and sanitation services. Creating employment opportunities through their water-based programs, also helps to ensure our brothers and sisters in need are able to continue to support themselves long after the field teams leave. Water for People believes that everyone should have access to clean water and proper sanitation. Forever.   

My goal is to raise $2500 by October 1st. For all the beautiful souls that donate to this urgent cause, I will publicly acknowledg your contribution on my business page and across all of my social media platforms during my campaign.

Many thanks in advance for your donation to this wonderful cause and to those of you who have already contributed – I truly appreciate your love, support and words of encouragement! I'm so blessed and honored that you are joining me on this amazing journey! My heart fills with joy when I think about all of the lives that will change through our campaign!

Blessings and love to you all!!
