Why David Laney is fundraising for clean water

Hey Everybody!
As we all do, I always struggle to know how to help people in need. I've been thinking about how with the current situation, we are all washing our hands a lot more, and many people on this planet simply don't have clean water to wash hands. So I figured I'd stop thinking about how to help people and just start doing what I know how to do, which is run. So, on Monday June 29th, I will run 100 miles on the Portland Waterfront to help raise awareness and funds for clean water. Thanks for partnering with Charity: Water and I in this goal to raise $4000 which will bring clean water to 100 people. 1 Person per mile. Much Love!

Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

I started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and I'm looking for anyone who can help me.

100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the exact community we helped.
