What is a little 5K (all uphill) on a beautiful Sunday morning in August? It’s everything to the young woman in Karagwe, Tanzania who will benefit from race funds and won’t have to walk 4 miles each day to fetch water from the nearest source. Instead she can attend KARUCO – Karagwe University College and learn how to develop an agribusiness and apply what she learns at the university. So “Asante sana” (thank you very much) to the 100+ runners who showed up August 9th at Staring Lake for traveling to Staring Lake Park in Eden Prairie and “Running for Victory". Particpants helped ETI raise over $3,000. to provide piping and water treatment for the 4 (200,000) liter water storage tanks. The tanks are part of KARUCO’s water harvesting system that serves to collect, store, purify, distribute and re-use rainwater. (Karagwe gets more rainwater than Minnesota – and we need to not “waste a drop”.)
