Over the past seven years of working with Team World Vision I have had the privilege of traveling to Africa ten times to see the work World Vision is doing. I can truly say that it is the most impressive thing I have seen in my entire life. Our staff in the field are some of the most talented people on the planet, working alongside communities to help tackle the root causes of poverty. World Vision has launched the largest privately funded water project on the continent of Africa. Our approach is complex, comprehensive, and sustainable. Your donation will truly help change lives forever!
It was exactly ten years ago that I trained for and ran in my first Chicago Marathon. It's hard to believe that it's been seven years since I helped start Team World Vision. We are now the largest team at the Chicago Marathon, we have 10 staff around the U.S. and have helped launch Team World Vision in seven countries. To celebrate all this I am running several races this year. The Chicago Marathon, The Comrades Ultra-Marathon, andThe Hood 2 Coast 200 mile, 12 person relay with my friend Lopez Lomong. Lopez is one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. He escaped after being captured by the rebel army and ran to Kenya where he lived in a refugee camp for 10 years before coming to the U.S. to live with a foster family. Lopez has represented the U.S. in the last two Olympics. Two years ago he came to Team World Vision to partner with us to raise money for his home country, the youngest country in the world, South Sudan.
World Vision works with communities in desperate need to help provide things like clean water, nutritious food, education, medical care, and economic opportunity.
Will you make a tax-deductible donation to support my efforts? Together we can help change lives in Africa.
