We believe in Children!

We are running with Team World Vision Madison to help provide life-changing clean water to children and communities in developing countries.They have better health, improved nutrition, and can go to school instead of spending the day fetching water.

If you have ever wanted to DO something about global water crisis, say YES! This is NOT just for runners. We welcome walkers, too!

Team World Vision provides EVERYTHING you need to cross the finish line, even if you start from the couch! 

We provide training plans, weekly group runs, weekly encouragement e-mails, a Facebook community, incentives for reaching fundraising goals, a kickoff party, an incredible race weekend experience, and a celebration breakfast post season.

In Africa, there is a saying: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." Join us and let's go farther together!

Why Sponsor a Child?

You help provide children AND their communities LIFE AND to the fullest. Access to clean water is SO MUCH more than that; its' access to nutritious food, basic medical care, access to school, and access to economic opportunities.  Sponsorship MULTIPLIES the impact of your fundraising through Team World Vision and brings a distant cause closer to home through a personal relationship with your sponsored child.

How World Vision Works:

These water projects run in harmony with our other key areas of development: health, education, food, and economic development. This approach tackles the root causes of poverty, enabling children to experience fullness of life.


Drill Rigs
These trucks traverse great distances to drill up to hundreds of feet underground to tap into water aquifers.

Wells
Hand pumps in the middle of a community allow water to be generated without electricity.

Solar Pumps
These panels generate energy from the sun to pull water from pumps, up into storage tanks, and then allow gravity to feed water to various communities.

Pipelines
Pipelines transport water from access points and allow for water distribution across hundreds of miles.

Rain Catchments
Roofs and other kinds of catchments collect rainwater into a storage tank for treatment and distribution.

Water Kiosks
From catching rainwater to receiving water from pumps or pipelines, community members come and fill up jugs for a small cost.

Latrines & Handwashing
Sanitation and hygiene are promoted by community leaders and practiced with ventilated, improved latrines and handwashing stations.

Repair Mechanics
Local technicians and members of the water users association are elected to help maintain water projects for long-term sustainability.
