5K Challenge

The average distance walked EACH day for water and firewood.


COVID-19 arrived in our area the first week of May.


Our founder Julie was planning to be in Malawi in May & June and fundraise from there for her upcoming 50th birthday.


We’ve responded by launching our #5Kchallenge fundraiser to bring water, soap and supplies for hand washing stations, materials to sew masks, animals for nutrition and income, and more, to our community of Luhomero, Malawi, in anticipation of the further devastation this virus will have on our village friends.

Total Raised $31,357
