Well, some of my friends are doing just that. Ordinary (I think extraordinary) people just like you and me that made a committment at the beginning of the year that they were going to run a marathon (26.2 miles) in November. None of them were runners, but they started with running a mile together each Saturday morning and have worked up to running 20 miles this last Saturday! They just decided together to do something bigger than themselves for someone who could not help themself. My friends call themselves the H2o Runners and they are trying to raise $7000 ($1000 for each man and woman running) for Blood:Water Mission. To date they have raised $1700. If you click on the link, it will take you to their blog site. There you can meet the runners, read about their vision, follow along on their Saturday runs, and donate to the cause. You can mail in a check or donate securely online. It does not take much...
- $1 gives clean drinking water to someone in Africa for a year.
- $25 gives clean drinking water to someone in Africa for life.
- $85 provides a family with a biosand filter to clean their water .
- $4000 builds the community a well and provides clean water for hundreds!
I am so proud of my friends and if you can join the fight, please consider a donation in their honor!
