Run For The Well Of It!
5K Charity Fun Run for Lifewater International
The global water crisis is real. After going on medical and dental volunteer trips to Argentina, Jamaica and Mexico, Shelby and I have seen first hand how people are affected by lack of clean, accessible water. That is why we chose Lifewater International as our charity of choice for this race. Clean water is taken for granted here since it's just a facet turn away. Out in the rural, poverty stricken places around the globe water, carrying waterborne diseases, can be dangerous. People will resort to drinking soda and juices that are cheaper than bottled water but contain alarmingly high amounts of sugar which can eventually lead to an array of dental and health problems. Lifewater International's strategy works through their WASH programs. Not only do they provide clean and easy accessible water by building wells, but they also teach basic hygiene techniques and promote sanitary living conditions such as building latrines and teaching proper disposal of items that may contaminate water.
Lifewater International is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating waterborne diseases and making water accessible all over the globe. For more information about Lifewater International, click on the link below
