Run It Fast

2013 Vol State 500K Endurance Run

organized by Run It Fast

Help Run It Fast give the gift of clean water. 100% of every donation raised will fund charity: water's work providing access to clean water projects around the world.





Why Run It Fast is fundraising for clean water

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, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. 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.

We started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and we need your help.

Two years ago, Naresh Kumar and myself raised over $6,000 for Charity Water and to build a clean drinking well for hundreds of people in a third world country.

As part of Run It Fast we've made Charity Water our cause. So far RIF has raised over $1,300 dollars.

Please donate to our campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help.

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.

Thanks for your help and support with Charity Water and my third attempt at completing the Vol State 500k.
