Run the Chicago Marathon for Clean Water with Team World Vision
Each day, nearly 1 billion people go without access to clean water, and more than 6,000 children under 5 die from diseases caused by unsafe water or lack of sanitation and hygiene. Many children in Africa walk six kilometers or more each day to fetch water.
For every $50 Team World Vision (TWV) raises, World Vision provides clean water for one child for life — transforming communities, reducing disease and allowing children to attend school and flourish.
Join TWV to run the Chicago Marathon for clean water on October 11! Base training for the race begins in April and full training begins in June.
Since 2010, Christ Church runners have raised more than $1 million for clean water, providing a new chance at life to over 20,000 children. For the 10-year anniversary of the Christ Church team, TWV wants to celebrate with their biggest crew of runners ever!
