I washed some breakfast dishes with water.
While brushing my teeth I used water.
After my morning run I drank some water.
The tea I drank while chatting with a friend this morning was made with water.
Water was very important in my shower today.
Drank more water with lunch.
I can't really imagine my life without water.
Nor have I had too.
All of the water I and my family use day in and day out is clean.
And even in California a state that had found itself in a serious drought for a few years, still has access to plenty of water.
Clean. Safe. Water.
And yet there are many people in this world that don't have this necessity.
Yes water is a necessity.
Because others don't have it. I want to do something about it.
I am committing to run my first marathon all for the purpose of water for kids.
Sweet precious life filled kids in our world that NEED water.
I will run 26.2 miles on Sunday March 15, 2015.
I have NEVER ran this distance before. It is overwhelming, intimidating, scary, and nerve wracking.
But I can't imagine knowing that there are people in our world who don't have water.
I can't stand not doing anything about it.
So I will run.
My goal is to raise $50 for every mile I run.
If you are interested in joining me...I would LOVE the support and encouragement!
Ways you can support:
- Come run with me! I have lots of training to do!
- Encourage me during the training.
- Come cheer me on during the marathon.
- Donate money for kids to have water.
My World Vision Page:
"We are intimately linked in this harvest work. Anyone who accepts what you do, accepts me, the One who sent you. Anyone who accepts what I do accepts my Father, who sent me. Accepting a messenger of God is as good as being God's messenger. Accepting someone's help is as good as giving someone help. This is a large work I've called you into, but don't be overwhelmed by it. It's best to start small. Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty, for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won't lose out on a thing." Matthew 10:40-42 (The Message)
Thank you friends!
Running on purpose!
