Short Video of Run for Water Event I Participated in

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

I just received a short video about the Run for Water Event in which I participated in the 5km race to raise funds for fresh water for residents in Ethiopia. Thought I would forward the link for the video for anyone interested in watching.

    Maria, I love that you ran in this race and that you posted the video for us to see this. I believe strongly the bible when it sayes to who much is given much is expected! I know I in the states have so much more than so many and I live a small modest life, but that life has so much more than half the world has and I know I am expected to give back in as many ways as the Lord brings to my heart. The Lord is always faithful to put those in my path to give back to, and I love giving back when we run or walk in a 5K in some way. Water, Wow what a vital thing that so many do without even knowing what clean water tastes like. You Rock once again my friend!

    Wow, what a race, CONGRATULATIONS, Maria!!! You make me want to do one, but I can only walk and I do not walk fast, I average between a 22 - 24 mph mile!

    Fun video! Sometimes hard to tell who was the recipients of the goods, which was part of the point, of course.

    Cool. Thoughts:
1) so ironic it was raining
2)$ 358,000 - wow!
3) it's so interesting to look at the different styles -- fun, intense, effortless, struggling.
4) really enjoyed the interspersed footage of who you are helping
