Detroit Marathon 2013

Why Do We Run?

Simple. To provide clean drinking water for people who are dying of thirst and disease. At Kensington, we've helped dig 56 deep-water wells in Africa since 2004 — now we want to supply safe water for all 1 million Pokot people living in northwest Kenya. That's big. But with your help we can do it. So join us. And make your miles matter.
