HELLO FRIENDS! 

As many of you know I am an avid traveller and as counterintuitive as it is to say, I feel my heart will never be full until I leave bits of it in tiny pockets throughout every corner of this earth. Although I love every place I've visited, a couple places I've travelled to have really stretched me, shaped me, and reframed my perspecitve on life; one of which is Guatemala. 

Through my travels I have experienced first hand that water is so essential to human life. No matter our age, race, religion, socioeconomic status, or how "good" or "bad" of a person you might be, EVERYONE NEEDS CLEAN WATER. 

I've been to places where you have to avoid getting shower water in your mouth because the water from the taps contain bacteria that will get you sick. As a vegetarian I couldn't eat any raw vegetables and had to be very carfeul with fruit because it was safe to assume nobody has enough money to buy filtered water to properly wash uncooked food for consumption. You have to buy bottled water for drinking, washing, brushing your teeth, and the only place you can get bottled water is at the store, which becomes a cost that quickly adds up. I started wondering how the locals do it and realized they dont. They cant. They just have to run the risk of getting sick. 

I'm running 10k to support HOPE International and their efforts towards providing access to clean potable water in Guatemala. I have reviewed their annual report statements and am impressed with their commitment to being financially responsible and their impact-based lens on community investment. https://www.hopeinternational.org/about-us/financials

Please support me to raise $1000 or MORE by the run date, June 17th. $100 can provide clean water to a family for a whole year. Thank you so much for your generous support to me and the people of Guatemala who have stolen my heart.
