Walk 4 Water - What a Success

This morning, we woke up and took the kids for a 4-mile walk at the beach. Well, that's not all we did.

This morning we participated in the Walk 4 Water event I had mentioned a couple of weeks ago supporting TheSamburuProject.org. So many people and families turned out to help the people in Kenya to get clean drinking water - without having to walk all day to get it.

Just before we began our walk, the founder of TheSamburuProject.org, Kristen Kosinski, announced to everyone that they had just completed their 25th well...ensuring that 25,000 people would now have clean drinking water. A-mazing!

While I had lots of fun on the walk and the mingling before and after the walk, I was so excited to see how easy it is to impact another person's life in a positive way. Sometimes the idea of volunteering or participating in a charity event can be daunting because you don't know what you want to do and aren't sure how to do it.

After participating in this event, I am reminded that it isn't that hard to participate and it can be a lot of fun when you have friends and family with you. I would like to thank my good friend, Kim Blum, for helping organize such a great event, and most importantly, getting me involved in helping make a life-altering change for thousands of people.
