Team: Kensington - Grand Rapids

Michele Barber

This is my third year walking with Hope Water and I have loved every step, every mile, every race and mostly the WONDERFUL life long friends I have made. I cannot say enough about how giving, amazing, spiritual, inspiring this group of runners, walkers, bikers, triathletes I have the honor of gathering with them on Saturday mornings to be changed by the community they create.

The cause is just as amazing as the people I have gotten to know!! We are doing all these events to raise money for the groups of people in Africa who do not have clean water. Can you imaging not being able to go the faucet, refrigerator, store or water fountain to get clean water? These people, mainly woman, walk miles and miles every day to get water and it is NOT clean!! We are running, walking, biking to raise money to dig wells that will allow these communities clean water... but not only water but education, churches and Jesus! What a life changing opportunity to donate to such a wonderful cause!! Please give what you can and think about the Pokot the next time you put a glass of water to your lips to drink.

Thank you and I hope you have a blessed day!
