Run or Walk for Clean Water

Our Running Waters 5K is almost here. We are already committed to sponsoring an orphanage and a school in Haiti. But even a year and a half after the earthquake, these kids still do not have easy access to water, and the water they can get to is dirty and filled with parasites. One of the most important elements in the planned village is to provide clean water for these kids.

On October 8 in Kirkwood, Missouri, our 5K will raise money for a well, a powered pump, a water purification system and a small shed-sized building to house and protect this system for the orphanage. 100% of the entry fee goes straight to the building project. We will have all kinds of giveaways, nice shirts for all participants and prizes that will all be paid for through sponsorships.

By participating, you will not only have a good time and enjoy a lot of free swag, but more importantly you will have direct impact on an important construction project that will bring clean water to orphans in Haiti.

Register here. It will be a great family event!
