Team World Vision runs for clean water & fullness of life for children in Africa.
In Africa they say, “Water is Life.” About 724 million people in the world lack access to safe drinking water. Children and women often walk five to ten miles a day to gather water that isn’t even safe to drink; water that can make them sick. More children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation than almost any other cause – more than AIDS and malaria combined.
Team World Vision empowers people to experience radical life transformation through endurance races, community advocacy, and social giving for the sake of clean water in Africa. We’ve been invited to run with Team World Vision right here in Long Beach!
You can HELP from HERE!
We have the opportunity to partner with Team World Vision to bless others with clean water! We have been offered the invitation to run a half or full Long Beach marathon for children in Africa–Uganda in particular!
INFORMATIONAL MEETING: Sunday May 3 after Sunday Worship (noon?) A Team World Vision representative will be with us for the morning service and for lunch!
