I'm running the Kansas City Marathon, October 20, with Team World Vision to help provide life-changing clean water to children and communities in Africa.
Nearly 1,000 children under age 5 die every day from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. But we believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes.
$50 = clean water for 1 person
Will you invest in the future and provide clean water for 1, 2, 3, or even more people?
World Vision provides more clean water than any nongovernment organization in the world, providing clean water to one new person every 10 seconds. They work to help communities lift themselves out of poverty for good by addressing issues around clean water, hunger, health, education, economic empowerment, and child protection.

I tried to get back into running-mode in May, I signed up for a June 16th 10k, but had to move it up to May 26th. I was under-trained with zero training in the heat. I ended up putting myself into the hospital for 3-days over the holiday weekend. Everything looks good so far. My doctor says to take it easy and ramp up slowly. So, just like that, this fundraiser has been made a little more difficult.
