Thanks to the incredible support from our many 5K participants from around the world and our numerous donors and supporters, the Ekenywa Virtual 5K Walk for Water was great success this past weekend. Because of your support, we raised more than $6,900 which will provide 138 people in Kenya with a lifetime of water! Congratulations to our top three finishers for the 5K: Frank White who came in first place, our very own Director of Operations, Ashley Gasperi, who came in second, and Tish Calla who came in third! We also want to congratulate everyone who participated in the event and who represented different countries around the world including Kenya, the United States, and Great Britain. Though the global health crisis has presented many challenges to our daily routines, finding ways to stay active and giving to those in need is not one of them. The success of our event demonstrates that as a global community we can truly make a difference. Thanks again to everyone who supported this event, helping us to provide clean and reliable water for women, children and individuals in Kenya! #5kwalkforwater ... See MoreSee Less
