Calgary Run for Water is a non-profit organization that raises money for clean water projects in Ethiopia. For the 6th year, Run for Water will feature a 10k Run, and 5k Walk/Jog/Run, as well as a 500m event for kids 5 and under.

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. BUT 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.

To date, the Calgary Run for Water has raised over $450,000, bringing clean water to more than 11,000 people in Ethiopia. Imagine if we ALL fundraised or donated? Think about the profound impact we can make.

THIS YEAR DON’T JUST RUN, RAISE for clean water in Ethiopia! This year's project includes a new water well for the village of Sheni Kondala in the Oromia region.
