Campaign: 2019 Grand Rapids Marathon
Team: 2019 Daybreak - Grand Rapids

Matthew LaPointe

I run for a purpose! Help me support this cause by bringing fresh drinking water to the villages in West Africa. In this day and age, 3 out of 5 kids die before reaching the age of 5 because they drink dirty water. I have been to West Africa, and I have seen the difference clean drinking water brings to these less fortunate. Clean water brings HOPE! A new life filled with joy, excitement, opportunities and faith! These people are truly grateful for something we take for granted.
This is where I need your help! I will be running two marathons this fall, the Sleeping Bear Full Marathon October 5th and the Grand Rapids Full Marathon October 20th. I'm asking for your help and generous donations to help me reach my goal. This cause is very close to me, and I hope together we can bring Hope to these villages!
