Today I oversaw the Pure Project Booth at the Cross Out Cancer 5k, where I also walked part of the 5k with friends and family. The run and organization was founded by a fellow classmate of mine Lizzie Dolan. For me going to the run was more than just a way to expose and advertise who we are, it was about seeing someone’s dream to help others become reality. Lizzie and her team were able to put their minds together and raise almost $60,000 to help childhood cancer. This is what amazes me, the community coming together just to help others out. We can say that our goal is to raise x amount of money to buy x amount of BioSand Filters by a certain date, but this means nothing without backing. Which is why I’m setting the goal for The Pure Project Community to come together and achieve greatness.
To all those I spoke to today, thank you. And also a very warm thanks to Lizzie Dolan and the Cross Out Cancer Team for allowing us to participate in a such a wonderful and awe-inspiring day.
