In 2013 I was inspired by the story of Ben Reyff and his efforts in running for Hope Water Project. I joined and trained for the Detroit Marathon but was unable to run until the following year due to a hip injury/surgery. I have since gone on to train and run multiple races between 2015 and 2019 in places like Detroit,Orlando,Grand Rapids, and Traverse city. All of these achievements however exciting and difficult PALE in comparison to the daily struggle of the Pokot to simply stay ALIVE, being constantly faced with dehydration and disease due to the lack of clean drinking water. ( something many of us in Michigan take for granted ) I run to give clean water , I run to give life , I run that The Pokot may know Jesus "The True water of Life" Please donate to help me bless The Pokot Tribe. Thank you and may God Bless You!
