Every Mile Counts

A global pandemic can’t change our commitment to bring clean, life-giving water to the Pokot people of western Kenya – and you can help! We’re moving on a virtual journey – one mile at a time – to reach around the globe and impact the Pokot. Every $15 donated (be a donor!) or raised (be a fundraiser!) moves us one mile closer to our destination. Whether you’re a runner, cyclist, a small group, or a family that wants to do a movie-marathon, this challenge can be tailored to you. 

That’s why we’re so excited for our newest virtual event, Every Mile Counts, on Saturday, October 17.

What’s so fun about this virtual event is not only you can join from anywhere, but you can do anything!

  • Whether you go 100 miles, 3 miles, to your mailbox and back or commit to sit and watch the entire original Star Wars trilogy…
  • Whether from your treadmill, neighborhood, local track or park…
  • Whether walking, running, cycling – even skateboarding if that’s your thing…
  • Whether by yourself, with your family, or with your best furry friend…

You can make a difference! You can change lives through the hope of clean water!

With a global pandemic upon us, clean water is now more critical than ever. Will you join us?
