A Temecula local church has a team of over 70 people running in the Los Angeles Marathon to raise money for clean water projects in Africa through world vision.

Many of the 70 plus people from Sunridge Church have never been a big fan of running, but each competitor pushes each other to block out the pain and achieve their mission for clean water in Africa. The church has a very diverse age group ranging from 15 to 66 who trained for six months to accomplish their goal to raise money in the LA Marathon.

World vision’s goal is to provide clean water for everyone they work with, supporting places that might be difficult to reach out. Africa has had a major problem with clean water for citizens in their respective country as alomst 1 billion people are without drinkable water in Africa. Sunridge church has so far raised $50,000 meaning clean water for 1,000 people in Africa.

In retrospect donating $50 can help an individual for a lifetime in support for clean water. Support Sunridge church March 19 while they run the Los Angeles Marathon and attempt to help citizens of another country better their lives through clean water.
