2015 Charleston Walk for Water

 

More and more these days, the answer to the question “How are you?” is quickly answered with one word: “Busy”. It seems that our lives have gone into hyper-speed as we push ourselves to the limit, making the most of the time that we’re awake. There’s nothing wrong with running full speed ahead, but even the fastest runners need rest. Additionally, when we’re running hard, we tend to miss things right around us. We fly past the small details in life, and rarely take time to slow down and look. For our friends around the world who lack the basic necessities that we often take for granted, we’re asking you to partner with us as we slow down.

On the morning of March 21st, 2015, we will stop running. In fact, that’s our only rule for the day: No Running! As we unlace our running shoes and slip into something more suitable for walking, we’re going to focus our attention on the details - on people. These people have names. They have families. They have friends. They have dreams. Together, we will transform the lives of thousands of people around the world as we restore their health, their hope and their future. And these “details” that we typically run right past will subsequently become our friends, and we will share in their joy when they will no longer have to walk for dirty and unsafe water.

So what do you say? Will you join us? By walking with us, you’re linking arms with us as we move towards transformed communities and renewed opportunities at life. Your fundraising and support will show the world that you’re not going to run past their cry for help.
