Join Gilbert in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, November 5, 2017 for the Gazelle Foundation’s Annual Run for the Water presented by Keller Williams Realty. For each registration in the 10-Miler, 5K or Global Run, the Gazelle Foundation is able to ensure one more person in Burundi access to clean drinking water for the rest of his or her life.
Sometimes the world can be an unfair and cruel place. Yet even amongst the worst of circumstances and in the midst of unfathomable tragedies, hope and happiness prevail.
Gilbert Tuhabonye knows this.
Gilbert has endured great suffering in his life. Yet his message isn’t one of sorrow or anger; it’s one of joy, faith and forgiveness. Driven by a desire to unleash the potential of anyone who seeks it – in running and in life – Gilbert’s indomitable spirit moves everyone he meets. He inspires others to believe that they can achieve anything, regardless of the circumstances or obstacles. He is a living reminder that humanity is greater than the sum of all the world’s injustices. And he is proof that the work of a few – or even just one – can make this world, our world, a better place.
