On May 15th, five members of The Upper Room will be running in the Pittsburgh Marathon to raise money for Team World Vision. The funds we raise will provide money for clean water wells in Kenya and Ethiopia, countries where lack of access to clean water has a profound impact on human life. To get an idea of just what that impact looks like, read the article ”In Sabina’s Shoes” from World Vision Magazine. Clean water projects initiated by World Vision are providing relief of that workload for women like Sabina, giving them opportunities for education, better nutrition, and more time with their families, and the money we raise by running in the marathon will go directly to support this work.
Please consider supporting us. Just visit Upper Room’s Team Page and click “Support Our Team”. If you’d like to give by check instead of online, simply make the check out to “World Vision” and mail it to us at 5828 Forward Avenue. We’ll collect all the checks together and sent them to World Vision.
