Dear Friends, Family, and Colleagues:
It's hard to believe but it's been nearly three years since ClearWater Initiative formally merged with the International Lifeline Fund and our respective water programs were integrated into what is now known as Lifeline's "ClearWater Initiative." Together, under the Lifeline name, the joining of our combined forces has successfully provided greater clean water access throughout Northern Uganda. In continued support of our collective efforts, we are back to run our 10th Army Ten-Miler in Washington, DC! All funds raised will support our sustainable clean water projects.
My personal goal is to raise a total of $5,000 but, to do so, I need your help.
As with previous years, many of the dedicated runners on this year’s team will run in honor of the ClearWater Initiative’s founder, the late U.S. Army Captain Benjamin Sklaver. This October will mark the 10-year anniversary of Ben’s death while serving in Afghanistan.
Today, Ben’s mission and vision lives on through Lifeline. Since 2003, Lifeline has provided clean water access to over 200,000 people in Northern Uganda. We are proud to honor Ben’s legacy and are hopeful to have even greater impact through this partnership. A successful campaign will enable Lifeline to continue Ben’s inspiring vision of providing clean water to those in the direst of circumstances. Your generous donation enables us to generate a positive impact on the livelihoods of even more communities.
Be sure and follow me and the entire team on our journey using #RunningWater on Facebook and Twitter!
