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. During Training I tore my hip cartilage resulting in missing the run in October and enduring Surgery in November. In 2014 after 14 weeks / 45 visits to the Physical Therapist I trained and eventually Ran the Marathon to the Glory of God! I have since gone on to train and run multiple races in 2015/16 including the 2015/16 half's in Detroit and more recently the 2016/17 Full Marathons at Disney World in Florida..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 consider donating to help me in my efforts. God Bless You!
