Running Together 6 Feet Apart!

Water is life; water is dignity.

The Niagara Falls Women's Half Marathon which I usually run each year might have been cancelled this year due to COVID-19, but the women's need for water has not! So I'm running at HOME and I want you to be there WITH ME!

Once more I am running a half marathon to raise $10,000 to support the increased water and sanitation needs of Reach One Touch One Ministries during this challenging time. Thank you so much to everyone who supported me last year, and helped me to raise $9710, to support water for women in Uganda through ROTOM's safe water and sanitation initiatives.

Did you know...

Uganda has the fastest growing number of seniors in the world!

Did you know...

Most of those seniors are raising their orphaned grandchildren because of the loss of their own adult children to HIV/AIDS.

Did you know...

These grandparents have no means of financial support; that means there's no food, shelter, water, sanitation, or school fees for their grandchildren.

Reach One Touch One Ministries has been working to support the health and social care needs of seniors and their dependents since 2003. Our vision is to support older persons living dignified and fulfilled lives!

Weekly training will hep me get ready for the long 21.1 km run on my treadmill at home - with many pictures and videos of waterfalls to accompany me and remind me of the beautiful Niagara Falls that I'll be missing this year. I'll be running on June 19, 2021, and tracking my progress through photos so please check out ROTOM Canada's Instagram to follow along with me! As always, my goal is to finish up right and smiling!

Thank-you so much for visiting my fundraising page and for your continued support!

Wish me luck!
