Thank you to the more than 3,800 who participated in the 11th annual Run for the Water in support of the Gazelle Foundation’s mission to bring clean water to the people of Burundi! Because of the joy and support of our volunteers, sponsors, runners, and fundraisers, we will impact 6,166 people in Burundi by providing access to clean water. Thank you for helping us change the world.
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.
