THE STORY:

Hi guys, after years of talk I have finally decided to make the leap and sign up for the NYC Marathon! 


I'm very excited to be partnering with Water for People; an awesome organization with a simple mission: everyone worldwide should have access to clean water and proper sanitation. In many countries around the world, access to these things is considered a luxury. Could you imagine coming home and not being able to pour yourself a glass of water or use a clean bathroom? Those of you with children, could you imagine not being able to feed or bathe them without worry of illness? 


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. The organization’s unique business-oriented approach works to establish partnerships between local and national government institutions, nongovernment organizations, private enterprise, and entrepreneurs to enable local communities, districts, and municipalities to plan, build, finance, maintain, and operate their own safe water and sanitation services. Water For People puts long-lasting solutions and 100% coverage of a region with safe water access for everyone at the forefront of its strategy. It fosters innovative solutions to water and sanitation problems that are adaptable worldwide, and through monitoring and evaluation of its program impact for at least 10 years post-implementation, Water For People ensures that its work is sustained by local partners.


I'll do the hard part and run 26.2 miles but I need your help to raise $2,500 for this amazing charity! Your donation goes directly to programs that help further this cause in Africa, India, Central, and South America. Thank you for your support!
