My Message

Hi, 

I'm running a 10K this year to help raise funds for clean water in Guatemala.

I grew up in Vietnam where my family used to have to dig well after well (ya, the type with a pulley system on one end and a bucket on the other end) to get clean water, and then store it in giant barrels for use during the dry season because tap water wasn't available, and when it did become available, drinking tap water was (and still is) not an option. I thought I had it bad. Since moving to Singapore and subsequently Canada, I've grown accustomed to easy and convenient access to clean water, and occasionally find myself splurging on bottled water (just because I can). But it doesn't take much to look around and on the Internet to appreciate how grave of a problem clean water access is in many parts of the world, Guatemala being a prime example. I'm gonna be running a 10km course and already fretting it, but imagine having to trek 10km every day for water! Unfortunately, that's what many folks have to do in Guatemala. 

This season, as we're heading into a hot, hot, hot summer, and revel in the prospect of hanging out under the sun and sipping on cold drinks, I invite you to help bring water to those who need it in Guatemala, so they too can know the joy of being refreshed, nourished and cleaned by water - the source of life. 

Your donations mean a lot to me personally, and I trust that it will make a difference to the lives of many. 

Thank you for your help!
