This is Trinity's first Team World Vision team!!!! I (Traci) ran on another team in 2017 and pretty much at the beginning of training I knew this mission experience would be coming to my church and friends of Trinity! Team World Vision is a beautiful example of what happens when The Church joins together in Jesus' mission! Team World Vision's mission is to provide clean water to communities in Africa and they do that by inviting The Church to run and as they run, raise awareness and funds to get clean water in Africa. $50.00 gets one person clean water....FOR LIFE. One African proverb says, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." On Team World Vision, we are all about going farther together.
Nearly 1,000 children under 5 die every day from diarrhea caused by dirty water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. That's why World Vision is providing a new person with clean water every 10 seconds as part of their full solution to poverty. As World Vision continues at that rate, by 2030 everyone, everywhere, will have access to clean water EVERYDAY. Will you join us in this mission?
Clean water frees children from deadly disease. It liberates women and children from a life spent gathering dirty water. It restores health and opens the door to education, a promising future, and a full life - the kind of life God intends.
You can get involved by joining the team, donating to the team, and/or donating to an individual runner to help us reach our goal..to get 1,000 kids clean water in Africa!
We'd love to have you join us on His mission!
World Vision provides more clean water than any nongovernment organization in the world. They work with communities around the world to help solve the puzzle of poverty -- providing things like clean water, nutritious food, education, medical care, economic opportunity, and spiritual development.
