Proceeds of the 12:1 Run are used to purchase water filtration units and distribute them around the world, providing clean water to those in need.

 

Clean drinking water, a commodity that we take for granted in our own lives, is in short supply or is non-existent in others lives. Since 2008, the 12:1 Run has provided water to hundreds of thousands of people across the world. We will persevere in our calling, not only by providing clean water to those without, but by introducing Jesus as their living water. Please join us and be a part of God's awesome work!

Because you run, walk, and volunteer, a community in Africa received water units to turn this local water source into clean drinking water!

  • In the 8 years that we have been running for clean water, the 12:1 Run has been able to donate $137,500 to the Compassion Ministry at Harmony Bible Church for the purchase of Hays Pure Water filtration units. That's enough funds to provide over 3 million people with clean drinking water!
  • 430 units have been deployed in 20 different countries.
  • One unit can provide clean water to 5000 people for 5 years. That means that potentially 2.1 million people around the world now have clean water to drink.
  • These are amazing numbers. That is why we run!

 


Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. - Hebrews 12:1
