As many of you know, I’ve recently started running. For fun. Seriously. It’s great.
It’s hard to get out there sometimes, yet there is never a time when I complete a run with regret. I always feel great after a good run.
I started running in January 2015 and since then I have helped raise over $1500 for Parkland Area education and awareness for mental health. I met one of the directors and they said that since they’ve started fundraising they’ve been able to move their representative from a limited part time position to full time work. That means more kids in Parkland hearing important & helpful stuff. I am super proud of that and will continue to raise support for them each Fall at their Run For Life event.
This May, for my 36th birthday I will run 36 km with a goal of having 36 people donate $36 towards charitywater.org. It is a super effective charity that helps bring water to people that need it.
$663 million people live without clean water. In a short amount of time, Charity Water has already helped 6 million people get clean water. 100% of every donation goes to these water projects.
Approximately $30 USD will help 1 person get access to clean water. So your $36 CAD + the extra $ I will pitch in for the conversion rate, will enable us all to help 36 people get access to clean water. What an amazing birthday that would be!
I will keep you up to date on my here on my blog. Just go to the bottom of this page, leave a comment, and you can check off if you would like email updates.
Please consider donating towards this cause here. And definitely check out their website with amazing coverage of their projects. Plus, when we donate they will send us GPS coordinates to show us exactly where our money is going. Super cool!
Trying to share good words within a world of noise. Introverted, but I need people.
