Running still, again, for clean water for the Pokot in Kenya. "ULTIMATELY, CLEAN WATER PROVIDES HOPE FOR A NEW FUTURE. Water is our most basic and vital need in life. Without it, nothing can happen. Nothing can grow. But with it, everything changes. Clean water quenches thirst – but it also restores health. With access to clean water, life can be given back to a community." DID YOU KNOW? More than 663 million people lack access to clean water. When a community gains access to clean water, its child mortality rate can drop by half. Every 90 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours searching for water. Lack of access to safe water is the number one cause of preventable death in the world. Contaminated water can transmit cholera, typhoid, polio, and dysentery. THE POKOT ARE BEAUTIFUL, HOSPITABLE, AND RESILIENT PEOPLE. They are also extremely impoverished, neglected, and marginalized; which is why we’re committed to investing in their lives. For over a decade, we’ve entered into partnerships in various communities in Africa to provide HOPE, one clean water well at a time. Running the FREEP Half- Marathon in October!
