Together we can make a difference. 

On October 20, 2013, I will be running 26.2 miles in my first marathon (the Des Moines IMT Marathon). During my half marathon training last year, I decided this year's race would be about something more than personal achievement so I am running to raise money to build a clean water well in India. The need is great but all it takes is a few friends giving $1/mile to impact thousands of lives. Would you consider supporting me in this effort?

DONATE HERE or you can mail your donation to GPPD (address below) with a note that you are giving toward Houdeshell clean water well campaign. Enter total donation amount below.

Amount: $

At this point, I've put in most of the hard work. The challenge in the next couple weeks is staying motivated and concentrating on proper nutrition. I missed one workout this week but ran three times for a total of 26.5 miles. Looking at four workouts this week for a total of 19 miles. I'm so grateful for the donations that have come in so far but need to pray for more supporters. Continued prayers for health and injury-free workouts is much appreciated.
