Run For H2O
Run for H2O seeks to raise money as well as awareness, compassion, and generosity for sustainable clean water projects to Guatemalan communities in desperate need. We believe that the provision of water will transform communities in poverty to have hope of a sustainable future. Through this Run, we also aim to bring together the Fraserview community by gathering support from businesses and general interest and concern. All funds raised will go directly to HOPE International, a registered, non-profit international development organization currently working in 22 countries. HOPE International’s mission is to improve the basic human necessities in third world countries while educating and involving North Americans in development issues.
Run for H2O will take place along the Fraser River as a visual reminder of water in Southeast Vancouver and Burnaby. It is also an ideal location as the River district is an award-winning project and the newest waterfront community in Southeast Vancouver. We chose this area specifically because of the scenery and how it is fast becoming a one of largest communities in Vancouver. With new developments rising and more to come in the future, new residents and life will be infused into the area and it only seems fitting that while a new community is growing, by supporting Run for H2O, it’s residents can also be part of a movement that restores life into another community in need of access to clean water.
H2O is the chemical name for water and as a play on words, it also represents Hope 2 Offer, the name of the leadership team and our goal – to offer hope to those who don’t have much of it.
We hope you catch our vision of making the world a better place by giving hope through clean water.
