Easton and Melanie Olfert's Run for Water Fundraising Page    

Dear friends and family, We have decided to participate in this year's Run for Water - an annual running event that is held in Abbotsford. This year's race is on May 25th at Mill Lake Park. Not only is it a great community event, more importantly it provides an opportunity for me to get involved in fundraising for some of the most needy people in the world. Every week, 40,000 people die for lack of clean water. It is horrible to think that the majority of these are kids under the age of 5. The good news is that providing just one person with clean water for the rest of the life costs only $35. We are asking people to consider sponsoring at least one person with a donation of $35 dollars. This money does not go toward our race as that has been covered, but straight to Hope International Development Agency. All contributions over $20 are tax deductible. You should also know that the Run for Water is run by Hope International Development Agency, a non-profit society. They do amazing work with over 95 cents of every dollar raised going directly to the projects they work on! We are raising money for a village called Yella in Southern Ethiopia. Please consider giving to this worthy cause. If you choose to write a check, please make the cheque out to "Hope International Development Agency" and return it to us no later than May 23rd. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Melanie and Easton Olfert
