Most people know that I am an avid runner. This time, however, I am running for a cause. So often we take the basic necessities in life for granted: Food, shelter, WATER... Water - the most basic necessity! Yet, over 1 billion people in the world don't have access to water. Among them is the 1 million people of the Pokot Tribe. The goal of the Hope Water Project is to help bring this basic need of life to them. So, please sponsor me in my goal to help bring a water well to the Pokot. To raise funds an awareness, I am running the Detroit Free Press Marathon with the Hope Water Project. I feel blessed to combine something I love doing while contributing to such a noble cause.
