Join our Marine Corps Marathon Team, Run for the Azawak!


Dear Friends of the Azawak,

I hope this email finds you well and ready as I challenge you to take on the physical feat of your lifetime! In solidarity with the marathons for water still being traveled every day by our friends in the Azawak, we are organizing a team to run the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC on October 27.

I invite all runners to join us and race for the benefit of Amman Imman!
 
As an Official Charity Partner of the Marine Corps Marathon, Amman Imman has more than a dozen open runner slots, which we need to fill by August 7. We’d be so proud and happy to have you as a member of our team! Along with running the marathon, we request that you raise a minimum of $300 to help support additional assistance—food security, livelihood, health, and education programs—for our borehole communities. These funds will also support the construction of a sixth borehole well, because while we continue to rejoice at the sight of the clean, precious water springing from our newest borehole in Couloubade, we are fast thinking to the future.
 
Many more thousands of people are still without access to water in the Azawak region. They travel for 10, 15, 30 miles or more, sometimes a marathon distance to reach one of our boreholes to fill their jerry cans and goat-skinned sacks with enough clean water for the immediate future. Sometimes that water is enough to sustain them and their families until their next journey for water; sometimes it is not.

At Amman Imman, we believe every human has the right to clean water, food, to live their lives in dignity with the hope of a better future. For some in the Azawak, those human rights and ray of hope are still far out of reach. BE hope, as you take on this amazing challenge and 
join us — for 26.2 miles — running in support of all human rights, dignity, and water for the people of the Azawak. 

We also believe in the power of social networks. If you cannot join our marathon team, please post the following link to our marathon team registration page — 
https://ammanimman.org/2013marinecorpsmarathon.html  — on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest and to any other social networks you have joined, encouraging your friends to run with us. We offer direct support to our team members as they prepare for the marathon, including the platform for a personal webpage where runners can raise funds and share their stories about what inspired them to run for water.  

Thank you in advance for running for the Azawak, supporting this campaign and helping interested runners find us. 

If you have questions, please contact Laurel, our Run for Water Coordinator, at 
laurel@ammanimman.org

Yours, for the children of the Azawak,
Ariane
