Hello friends and family!

I have decided again to support communities in need in Guatemala by participating in the RunForH2O event on Saturday, June 17th 2017. I will run 10KMĀ in South Vancouver to fundraise for clean water projects for some of the world's poorest, most marginalised indigenous populations.

As you probably know, this is a cause very near and dear to my heart. The poor availability of drinking water and sanitation is one of the biggest contributing factors to rural poverty in Guatemala. Farming families rely on rain to grow food, and there are long periods of drought each year without rain to water the soil. Women and children walk up to three or four hours each day to fetch scarce water from streams for drinking, cooking, bathing, and cleaning. This water is dirty and causes frequent illness and death from waterborne disease. Children, especially girls, are unable to go to school because they need to fetch water each day. Life is a daily struggle for survival.

A different life and future is possible for these families. Each $100 raised helps provide one person with access to clean water for the rest of their life. I would like to help at least 5 people in Guatemala get access to clean water this year. Your gift means a new life marked by hope for these people. Thank you for your generosity; it is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Jenn
