In 2014 I became aware of the Hope Water Project, an organization that exists to provide clean water to the Pokot people in northwestern Kenya. Over the past 2 years I have gotten to know an incredible group of people who believe that we are here to serve, not to be served. The cost of bringing clean water to one of the Pokot people for their entire life is just under $25! Because I cannot do everything for everyone, does not mean that I cannot do something for someone. This will be my 3rd year to participate in the Detroit Marathon. It's something that I never thought I would do even once in my life. This is a chance to do something that will make my life mean something long after my life is over. Thank you so much to my freinds and family who have joined with me in this movement, the difference you are making is incredible!
