Water is life. The average American is recommended to drink 64 or more ounces of water a day, roughly half a gallon. What if you lived in rural Kenya and were told you could only drink half of that and instead of that water being fresh and clean it was brown, contaminated, and full of parasites? Unfortunately, for 14 million Kenyans, the heartache of drinking contaminated water is their reality. Over 80% of illnesses could be cured with a simple solution, clean water.
Kenya Medical Outreach in a partnership with Boosterthon Fun Run is bringing the Water For Kenya 5K to Historic Downtown Norcross this June. Our goal is to provide a lifetime of sustainable, clean drinking water for Kenyan men, woman, and children. Come join us as we provide water for life!
