If you're here you know I love running for Hope Water Project - this will be my 4th year with the team and its been a privilege to be on such an amazing journey with my family and friends! Every step I take, through every person who supports, translates to life change for the Pokot by clean water wells, as well as life change for individuals in our community right here. Small sacrifice here means HUGE life change there.
I was blessed with the opportunity to meet the Pokot this year and I wish I could relay even a drop of the gratitude they have for all of the support and prayers. These are an amazing people who are filled with HOPE and a faith that God will provide for their needs. These truly are a forgotten people and outside of our commitment to them, they have no plan B. Getting the chance to visit villages with no clean water as well as villages where wells have been installed, followed by churches and schools, and community, has opened my eyes to the magnitude of the problem, but also the amazing way that God is letting us be a part of the answer. Its a privilege to run for this team and for the Pokot and I appreciate your support for my Kenyan family more than I can say!
