My motivation for running this year is a little girl I've never met. I don't even know her name. A good friend of mine spend 6 months in Africa, working in orphanages. She would hold them and play with them and love them. But she wasn't allowed to know their names. This particular little girl had HIV, and no family, and most likely has not survived. I don't know what her story is, or if her illness could have been prevented. But I do know that Water is hope to these people, these children. It means life, and health and safety and opportunity. It means a future. I've decided to call that little girl Themba, which means "Hope" in Xhosa. I am running for Themba.
