You Run. We Dig.
Did you know it only takes $30 to provide one person in Burundi clean water for life? And $500 to provide a classroom of students clean water.
Here’s a way to add more motivation to any distance at 2020 Austin Marathon, Half, 5K. And your accomplishments more meaningful. As you train and prepare for race day, use your race as a platform to spread the word about the importance of clean water and inspire others.
We're honored to be an official charity of the Austin Gives Miles program. We're excited to make this year our best yet! Thank you for supporting our team!
Through clean water systems, the Gazelle Foundation is solving a crisis and saving lives.
The Gazelle Foundation knows that clean water is the key to life. But no one knows this better than the people of Burundi. For more than 11 million people, access to clean water means access to better health, stronger community, jobs, education, and most of all: hope.
Together, we can transform lives and make it possible for an entire country to break from the grips of poverty and flow freely once again.
Future beneficiaries of your generosity:
* Rwasanga Primary School (665 students & teachers), college: (838 students & teachers)
* Rwasanga Catholic Church (200 people on Sundays)
* Rwasanga Pentecost Church (130 people on Sundays)
* Mahango Primary School (176 students and teachers)
* Mahango Pentecost Church (100 people on Sundays)
In Austin, Texas we also provide educational programming to help children (middle school and high school) gain a deeper understanding of water scarcity, consumption, and their role and ability to be engaged, global citizens. They are helping transform futures for people in Burundi. Check out our work here and here.
