Making Miles Mean More for Thousands of Lives!
Dana's Story of Impact
Dana had always wanted to run in a marathon but was particularly inspired after her grandfather, a faithful marathon runner, passed away. After hearing stories about the water crisis in India and how people had to walk miles to get fresh water, Dana decided that she wanted her marathon miles to mean something more. She brought her idea to Global Partners and a team was formed to run in the Harrisburg marathon. By obtaining pledges of $100 per mile, the team had a goal of raising enough money to fund three water wells in India. Dana and the team wanted to help those in India hear about the Living Water by providing running water that would save lives. Through much generosity and prayer, money was raised for nine water wells that first year! Dana took action to make the miles she ran help provide running water for those in need.
You can do the same! In India, water often brings disease and death rather than life. A child dies every 20 seconds because of water-related disease. By coming alongside Global Partners in the Harrisburg Marathon, you can make a difference in the lives of those with limited access to clean water. One water well can provide clean water for an entire village. Each dollar can provide access to fresh water for one person for the rest of their life! You can take action today and make an eternal difference by challenging yourself and others to make your miles count by bringing fresh water and living water to the people of India.
