As someone who has a lot of obsessions (see here, here and here), I realize my words might lose their oomph when I get to raving.
But, if you know me, you know that one of my greatest obsessions in life is water.
Good, clean, h2izzo.
I recently went on a date and he asked me if I'm one of those people that carries a water bottle around everywhere they go. To which I said: No. I am not one of those people; I am that person.
To say it's an obsession would be an understatement I'm not comfortable making.
That being said, one of my favorite charities, which I discovered through the one and only Courtney, is charity: water. When she was on the Mercy Ship, Scott Harrison, the founder, was there as well. After leaving the ship, he started the charity, and the rest is history.
This year, in an effort to combine three of my favorite things (water + courtney + working out), I've decided to dedicate my triathlon to building a well.
The cost of one well is $5,000, and I hope to take a good chunk out of that through fundraising. Feel free to check out my campaign. I'd would love your support, if you feel compelled to do so.
If everyone that reads my blog on an average day gives $13, it'd be more than enough to cover the cost. However, I certainly realize that money is really tight right now, and $13 is a lot of money to a kid like me. So, if you want to provide support, I'd love for you to pass along the link to my well, so others who relate to my passion for the cause can share the love. The thought of giving clean water to kids who walk miles to find dirty water every day warms my heart, and I know it'll keep me going during the race.
Thank you in advance for your help! I truly, truly appreciate it.
