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: $

Running 26.2 Miles for Water This Weekend

Everywhere you look we have access to clean water and most of the time we take it for granted. It's not until there is a problem (e.g., flooding, natural dissaster, boil order) that we think about our need for water. Unfortunately, milliions of people around the world don't have that luxury because they don't have access to clean water. It doesn't have to be that way. Building one clean water well can support a villiage of around 4,000 people and last beyond a lifetime. Rather than wait for someone else to do something, I've decided to take action and run 26.2 miles for clean water! Would you consider supporting me in this effort today? Together we can make a positive impact on the world that doesn't take an act of Congress!
