To my friends, family, and associates:
Can you believe it...? I signed up for a half MARATHON (AGAIN)... !
I'm entered in the Grand Rapids Marathon on October 15th, 2017.
You might think I'm CRAZY, but there's a very important reason why I am doing this. I am teaming up with Hope Water International again this year, and dedicating my race to helping provide CLEAN WATER to communities in Africa. I'm a bit nervous about the miles, but I know that with this purpose in mind will keep me going.
Over 750 Million people in the world lack access to clean water. 750 MILLION... ! That is almost two and a half times the population of the United States !
Will you make a donation on my behalf to help change that fact?
BREAKING NEWS: There is someone from our church (DAYBREAK) that has generously offered to MATCH (Dollar for Dollar) EVERY donation that is raised by our TEAM.... ! So let's make a BIGGER DIFFERENCE Together... !
Thank you for YOUR generosity.
