Supporting: Running Water for the Living Water - 2022 for Global Partners in Peace and Development

My Team: Creating for the Creator



I am so excited to be able to run again with the Running Water for the Living Water team this year! I have run with the team the past 3 years in Harrisburg, PA and also in Lynchburg, VA last year. I believe that God has given me a passion for running as well as for missions and I think it is so incredible that I can combine both those passions together with this team to be a part of God's work around the world. 

I have seen firsthand through several experiences I have had these past few years the wonderful opportunity that working to provide clean water to communities has to be a part of drawing people to Christ, the Living Water. Through hearing the stories of the well dedications and projects that this team has been a part of supporting as well as working with a water ministry in Ecuador this past summer, I have seen the great needs for clean water and for Christ around the world. And so, I am so excited to again be a part of this team to help support the meeting of these needs!

This year I will be running with the team in the full half marathon in Salem, VA on October 8 as well as on a relay team from Liberty University in the Harrisburg Marathon on November 13. I would love for you to be a part of this work through prayer and financial support for the team as you feel led to give and to see what God will do this year. May God bless you all out of His abundant grace!

Sincerely by God's grace,

Arianna Verbosky

Harrisburg Marathon & Relay - November 13       |     Salem VA Half Marathon and 8k - October 8

Running Water for the Living Water began in 2016. 15 runners were touched by the water crisis in rural India. Propelled by God's love, they ran in the Harrisburg Marathon to raise money for wells installed by Global Partners in Peace and Development (GPPD). Over the past 7 years, our team has raised over $440,000, bringing clean water to thousands in both India & Uganda.


In many villages where GPPD installs water wells, the average person must walk for over an hour to fetch water and often the water must be boiled before they can use it. Many children get sick and die because of drinking unsafe water. In other villages, families live on an insufficient or rationed supply of water. 

As individuals, families, friends, and churches, we join together to raise funds for wells in India and Uganda. Race day is the finale to our fundraising season and a symbolic "crossing of the finish line" as we celebrate what God has done. A few months after the race, runners/walkers and donors will receive a personalized video update featuring the well they helped provide. You're invited to join us! On average, every $5 dollars given can provide 1 person clean water for a lifetime.

Donors of any amount will receive  details, pictures, a video, and GPS coordinates of the well you helped install.



Any donation of over $250 will allow your name or business name to be printed on our team t-shirt as. bronze sponsor. There are additional benefits of sponsorship at the silver ($500+), gold ($1,000+), or diamond ($2,600+) level.
