The Relay Race

Hood to Coast is the Largest Relay in the world with over 1,000 teams, 12 runners each, running 199 miles from Mt. Hood, Oregon to Seaside, Oregon. The course consists of 36 legs; each team member runs three in rotation. The legs vary in length from 3.5 miles to 7.8 miles, and in terrain ranging from virtually flat to steep hills. A runner may total between 13.6 miles and 19.7 miles. The race start is on Friday and is staggered with teams starting as early as 6:30am, going out every 20 minutes until 6:30pm. Teams must complete the course within a 32-hour time limit (averaging under 9:30 minutes per mile). 

The Need

South Sudan, the world’s youngest country, faces many challenges associated with nation building. Over half of the population lives in poverty and most communities lack basic infrastructure. Our goal is to change a generation by creating long-term solutions at the local level.  Every day, nearly 1,600 children under 5 die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. More children die every day from diarrhea caused by unsafe water than from AIDS and malaria combined.Worldwide, 748 million people lack access to clean water. More than 90 percent of them live in rural areas.  

The Challenge

Run Hood to Coast and help provide clean water to communities in South Sudan through Team World Vision. We are asking every Hood to Coast team member to raise $10,000, We know that raising $10,000 can sound scary but we believe that you can do it. We have specialized fundraising resources and coaches to help make this a reality. $10,000 = clean water for 200 people. Multiply that by 120 team members and we can raise over $1,000,000 and provide water to approximately 20,000 people in South Sudan!

The Impact

World Vision provides more clean water than any nongovernmental organization in the world -- reaching one new person every 30 seconds. Clean water is a problem for which there is a solution. World Vision is one of the leading organizations bringing clean/safe water to communities in a sustainable way. When a community gains access to clean water:
