I am so honored to be running in the 2017 New York City Marathon for a charity cause raising money for Water for People! Running a full marathon has been a bucket list challenge of mine for awhile and the fact that so many people on our planet still don't have easy access to clean water astounds me and that many of those people have to walk on average of 5 hours a day to get to a clean water source is beyond belief. So I didn't give it a second thought when I was given the opportunity to raise money for such a necessary cause! And I know that if so many people have to travel so far for decent drinking water every day, then why couldn't I run that distance, for just ONE day? And so by people like you, donating to this great cause, will help provide funds to a charity that provides indigenous communities access to the clean water they need for their very survival, which should be a necessity to every. single. being. on this planet, & not just a privilege for first world nations. So it is clearly up to US, to share OUR monetary resources to help provide the inherent resources this Great Earth was designed to provide for EVERYONE. For ALL PEOPLE. Regardless of their race, their age, or their Nationality. So please, think about whether you've ever had to wonder for more than 24 hours, where your access to clean drinking water would come from, & then consider donating to this great cause. And to the People of our great Planet. And for Water for People.
