Hello my friends! I first want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who has come along with me for the journey to change 60 lives by providing clean, running water to rural communities in Africa. Without your generous contributions and encouragement, my training would be in vain. Speaking of my training, I know this blog has been quiet for the last month, but that was because I was working hard to build my body up to handle the longer distances! Here is proof of my work:
Beside my struggle to survive 10 miles of continuous running, I am excited to share that we have been able to raise $2025 together! That is over two-thirds of our goal of $3000! Whoo-hoo!
Race Day is coming up quickly, on October 8, 2017. With a little under two weeks left, I really want us to push toward bringing hope our international brothers and sisters and their children. We need 39 people to step up and donate at least $25. Let’s make it happen and to give this fundraiser an extra push, I will be hosting a giveaway as a token of appreciation for those who have already contributed and to give those of you who are considering, a last nudge to make a difference.
First of all, if you have already donated at least $25, you are automatically entered into this giveaway so long as you have provided me your name and email address. If you have donated as Anonymous and did not provide your contact information to me while donating, please contact me if you would like to join the giveaway.
On October 9, 2017, 12:00 PM PST, two lucky winners chosen at random will receive a 16 oz. Insulated Miir tumbler. If your name is chosen, you will have a choice between black or white! Interestingly, Miir shares a portion of their profits from merchandise sales with trackable global water projects! Isn’t that fitting for our mission to bring clean water to rural African communities? Talk about a double impact! I personally own an insulated water bottle from Miir and love that it is both stylish and able to keep my freshly brewed tea hot while I am at work.
We have two weeks left to finish this fundraiser. Let’s make sure we get clean water to as many people as possible! If you have not already, please watch my official fundraiser video and share with your friends, coworkers, and family.
