We look forward to racing in VA for the first time as a team in fall 2021. The Virginia 10 Miler is one of the most iconic races in central Virginia, drawing participation from numerous professional athletes and Olympians over the years. Since 1974, the Virginia 10 Miler has grown to include over 3,300 finishers in 2019 (2020 event was cancelled). Past event pictures and updates can be found on the 10 Miler's social media pages.
1. SIGN UP FOR THE RACE
Register for the race on the Virginia 10 Miler Website.
2. START A FUNDRAISING PAGE
Create your own fundraising page through FlipCause. Friends and family can give directly and securely to Global Partners, and you can easily track your progress. This step is the ONLY WAY to officially join the Running Water team. We challenge you to set a goal of raising at least $100 for every mile run, or funding an entire well for $2600. Set up the page under your name or a team name (if you plan to pool fundraising with others).
ABOUT THE CAUSE
Global Partners has installed 341 fresh water wells from 2013 to January of 2021. We thank God for the opportunity to share the gift of life with so many villages in India, and most recently Uganda. We partner with local pastors to find villages most in need. After each well is installed, a dedication celebration is held. These celebrations are filled with joy, singing, dancing, and laughter!
