That’s Why I Run: Team World Vision- Clean Water for Children in Africa

I run…because learning about global poverty isn’t enough. In college, I minored in African Studies and chose Swahili as my foreign language, and while that raised my “awareness,” learning about East Africa will never save a single life if it doesn’t pay off in action. I have never been in want for water a single day in my life. Kids in Kenya are dying of diarrhea — one child every 15 seconds dies from a water-related illness. What good is the Gospel if, having received it, I never act? Team World Vision is my opportunity to help save lives in Africa. That’s why I run.
