Clean Water for Kenya

On June 3rd, I plan on running my first half marathon to raise money to purchase life saving water filtering straws for Kenyans. As many of you may know I have close family living in Kenya, a place I care deeply about and spend my summers. 

Many of Kenya's citizen do not have access to drinkable water; its water supplies frequently contain dangerously high levels of contaminants including many forms of bacteria. To help to mitigate this problem, I plan on purchasing approximately 170 Sawyer Drinking Straws (at $18 apiece). 100% of the funds I raise will go toward the purchase of straws. Each of these straws can filter 100,000 gallons of water before being deemed unsuitable, meaning that these straws can be used for a person's lifetime. Additionally these water straws promise to remove 99.99999% of all bacteria including salmonella, cholera, and E.coli-- all of which are present in Kenya's water supply. I hope you will help me in my efforts.
Best, Dahlia
