Will you help me SHOW LOVE and bring clean water, HOPE and a future to the Pokot tribe in Northwest Kenya? The Pokot walk miles every day carrying a 5 gallon jug on their head to hopefully find and bring back water to their villages.
Although I have not personally been to Kenya to witness such a walk carrying a 5 gallon jug on their head, I have seen the videos/photos and talked personally with friends that have been there and attempted the walk themselves. It's much harder than it looks.
This is my 5th year in supporting and promoting Hope Water International-North in Traverse City, MI. What is HWI-North? We are a team of runners and walkers that meet at 7:30am every Saturday morning. We talk about WHY we show up every Saturday...from personal goals (getting in shape, losing weight, etc.), to supporting one another, praying for one another and training together to run a half or full marathon in the fall , The Sleeping Bear Marathon. By doing so, we bring awareness to our community and grow within our group as a team or what we call a "tribe" here in Traverse City. We are not raising money for personal reasons, such as the event we train for, but rather for the equipment and labor that is required to bring clean water wells to Kenya.
Living in Northern Michigan it's easy to take cold, clean water for granted.
Take a moment to pause, and please consider joining me (us) on this mission - prayerfully, financially, or both!
Water is Life!!
