Running for Water

More than a year and a half has passed since Haiti's devastating earthquake that left millions homeless, displaced with no access to clean water. Many relief organizations continue dedicating their time and resources to make clean, parasite free water accessible for Haitians.

The Haiti Orphan Project (HOPE) has organized "The Running Waters 5K" fundraiser to raise money to build a well for children at Philadelphia Orphanage in Haiti. 
"The Running Waters 5K will raise money to purchase the materials and manpower to build this much needed well. 100% of every entry fee goes straight to the children at Philadelphia Orphanage! Come on out to the Keane Insurance Group building on October 8 and Run for Running Water!"--HOPE webpage.

If you are interested in making a donation to bring clean, parasite free water to orphans but aren't able to make the run/walk, donations can be made on online.
