My Message

Every day, families in Guatemala suffer due to limited access to clean water. 3 years ago I had the chance to visit villages in rural Guatemala and witness first hand the daily struggles of the women and children to get clean water. Some walk over 3 hrs through treacherous trails only to get contaminated water from a stream for their daily needs. I also had the wondering privilege to hear stories and see how lives are transformed once the villages have access to clean water: children can go to school wearing clean clothes, men and women are able to grow better crops on their fields and provide for their families, women have more time to pick up additional skills which help with the family income.

Will you join me to support the families in Guatemala by donating to the cause or running 5k/10k with me? On Saturday June 16, I will be running 10k at Riverfront Park! The money raised will go towards bringing clean water to the village of Talaxcoc in the province El Quiche, through the building of clean water systems. Every $100 raised is able to provide 1 individual with clean water for LIFE!!

Will you help me this year to transform the lives of 10 individuals??
​(thanks to the generosity of supporters, we have reached and exceed the initial goal of $500 within 7hrs of setting up this page. ​You guys are awesome!! ​And because I know there are a lot of awesome people out there, I have increased the goal to $1000 for I know we can have a greater impact if we put our resources together!!)
