Running water

Read Mission Statement

I'm running my first half marathon in October to raise money for charity: water because 663 million people on this planet don’t have access to clean water. That’s 1 in 11.

That means 1 out of 11 people in our world is drinking water that comes from a river, lake or muddy hole in the ground every day. Dirty, contaminated water that has leeches and debris in it. Water that causes disease, keeps kids out of school and takes hours to bring back home.

I joined the September Campaign again this year because I think every person on the planet deserves clean water. I deeply believe in the mission and financial integrity of charity: water, which is why I continue to support them both through my own personal monthly contributions and fundraising campaigns like this one.

It is possible to bring access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to every person on the planet, but it's going to take all of us. Our response to the water crisis will define our generation, and I hope you'll join me in supporting a top-notch organization that's doing it right.

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

You can give a little or you can give a lot. The craziest thing we can do is nothing.
