Water For People has been selected as a Level 1 Star charity partner for the 2017 Marine Corps Marathon happening on October 22, 2017.  Become one of our FORTY (40) team members and join us in running from Virginia to Washington , DC as part of "The People's Marathon."   Spots are first come first serve; email Michael Johnson ( for a short application for one of our spots.


The average person in developing countries dedicates hours of their day just collecting water, most of them women and children.  On October 22nd, the Water For People team will mimic the hours required to collect water by running for hours to support projects that will bring safe and sanitary water to developing countries.

The Plan
Runners who join our team will receive the following perks:

  • A 16 week training guide to help you prepare for your marathon (beginner, moderate and advanced plans depending on your ability and goals)
  • Weekly newsletter with tips/advice from experienced runners of marathons and the NYC marathon
  • A running long sleeve shirt to wear with pride for our team
  • Promotion of you and our team with all of our contacts in our industry, which will assist you to reach your goal
  • Tips and advice on how to meet your fundraising goal

All runners will be required to fundraise through, which after joining our team we will create with and for you.  Each individual will have a minimum fundraising goal of $500 to support Water For People programs worldwide.  Each team member that meets the fundraising goal will have their registration for the marathon paid for by the charity as a way of saying thank you.  We are now building our team. Email Michael Johnson ( to receive a short application to run with us.  Spots will go fast!
