My Message

I have decided to participate in 2017 RunForH2O on Saturday, Jun 17th 2017, a10km run at the River Front Park, South Vancouver, to raise money to bring hope to poor families in Guatemala without access to clean water. The low 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 the families. Each $100 helps provide one person with access to clean water for the rest of his/her life. Each $600 helps provide one family with access to clean water for the rest of their life.

For the past 4 years, Run For H2O has raised fund to help build sustainable clean water systems for many communities in Guatemala.  These communities not only have life-saving needs met through provision of clean water, but also improved health care, education and income-generating activities that help lift them from a life pf poverty to self-reliance!

Your gift means a new life marked by hope for some of the most marginalized, vulnerable indigenous people in Guatemala. Whatever amount you may be able to give will help to bring hope and life to a child, a mother, or a family in Guatemala.  We are truly blessed to live in Vancouver where we are surrounded by mountain, ocean and forest.  We have the privilege to have clean water just at our tap.  Yet, it is a luxury to have clean water at Guatemala.  Let us share our wealth with those in need.  I sincerely thank you for your financial support for me to participate in this event. On behalf of the Guatemalan, THANK YOU for your generosity.
