DESCRIPTION

Run for Water Society is a non-profit organization which raises money for clean water projects in Ethiopia. For the 12th year, Envision Financial Run for Water is hosting a multi-distance race event, including Half Marathon, 10k Run, and 5k Fun Run. When you register to run, you have the option of running solo, or creating a team to run together.

The average person in North America is only 5 seconds away from clean water...the average person in Ethiopia is a 5 hour walk away from water.

This shouldn't be. YOU CAN CHANGE THIS.

100% of the money raised by donating and fundraising goes directly into the communities to provide them with clean water and quality primary education. This means that girls no longer have to go on very long and laborious daily journeys in search of contaminated water. With access to safe, clean, drinking water, kids in the village can go to school, mothers can start businesses, fathers can water their crops, and children no longer die of waterborne diseases.

This year, we are partnering with the rural community of Shenaka! Young leaders of Shenaka have already spent a year mobilizing their community to raise funds and other resources for the water project. We invite you to come alongside them to help them complete the clean water and quality primary education project this year! Tax receipts will be sent to your email for your donation.

THIS YEAR DON’T JUST RUN, RAISE with the community of Shenaka!
