Run For Water on World Water Day

Run for Water
World Water Day March 22, 2008

A run to bring water to families in Africa dying of thirst

Runners, Washington, D.C. locals and people interested in supporting an effort to build the next borehole well in the Azawak Valley - please come out for the Run for Water on March 22, 2008!

March 22 is recognized by the United Nations as World Water Day. The event will raise awareness about global water shortages and Amman Imman's efforts in Niger.

Runners will run one portion of a marathon - 26.2 miles. The total distance run on March 22 will signify the distance many children in the Azawak must travel to find water for their families.

Each participant will set their own fundraising goal. The run will follow the National Marathon route, with the first runner taking off at 9 a.m. from the corner of Columbia and Connecticut Avenues NW.

So, pick a distance, a fundraising goal, a pace, and, if you'd like, a partner and sign up now by e-mailing: Sponsorship sheets will be provided to all runners after signing up.

If you aren't up to the athletic challenge, please consider donating on behalf of the runners through the Amman Imman website:
