Campaign: Grand Rapids Marathon
Team: Daybreak

Dawn Newell

Prior to April of this year, I did not run. Then I began to hear about Hope Water International and how they are helping bring clean water to those who typically have to walk miles just to gather dirty water to drink. In hearing this, I signed up to run the Grand Rapids Half Marathon on October 15. Crazy, right??

This is a sacrifice and it is not easy. I have run 12 miles in one day and I have also sustained an injury during training. The thought of those who have to walk that distance for clean water and leave their families behind to do so...that is what kept me going.

My hope is to raise $1000 for this cause. The best part......every donation will be matched! This means your donation will be doubled!

Please consider donating to this amazing cause.

Thank you, in advance, for your donation and your prayers.
