Clean Water gives Hope, Freedom and Abundant Life!
Last year in November I made the decision to walk in a charity relay with Team World Vision in the Los Angeles Marathon in March of 2015. I do not run! But I can Walk! So I began training to walk 13.1 miles and to fundraise to provide clean water for the people of Africa. Every day thousands of children risk their lives to walk many miles to gather water for their families. The carry large 50 pound cans filled with unclean water that is infected with disease that causes them to be sick. These children may be walking more than once a day. World Vision is working to build clean water sources in communities in Africa so that these kids and their families will have clean water! $50 dollars provides clean water for one person for life. That also means that instead of walking miles and miles each day to gather dirty water, they gather clean, life giving water and they have the opportunity to go to school. And so, I trained and completed my first half marathon in March. I raised $2050.00 for clean water! I am currently training to walk again in the LA Marathon in 2016! It's not easy, it's even hard, but I can walk 13.1 miles and remember the people of Africa who need the support in order to have Hope for their futures. Clean water provides so much more for them than just satisfying their thirst! And that is why We also sponsor a child in Ethiopia and also in Bangladesh through World Vision! And that is why I sacrifice and walk for Clean Water! Clean Water is Life!
