Help Orant Charities provide access to clean water in rural Malawi by supporting us through the Zeigler Kalamazoo Marathon.

Whether you're in DFW, Kalamazoo, or somewhere else; run, skip, or jump your way to the finish line! No matter how you move, or where you are, join us virtually or in-person as part of the global community to provide access to clean water in rural Malawi through the Zeigler Kalamazoo Marathon.

Why Water?

Water touches every aspect of our lives. It is vital for our health, gender equity, and economic development. Still, more than 4.5 million Malawians live without access to safe, reliable water sources. As a result, nearly every child in these communities will suffer from potentially fatal waterborne diseases, such as cholera, typhoid, and diarrhea. 

Even Malawians with access will spend hours walking to collect water for their families. This task disproportionately falls on the shoulders of women and young girls, limiting their ability to pursue other activities, including school, and jeopardizing their futures.

Join Orant's 2023: Running Water Campaign, and help us raise $5,000, which provides enough funding to drill a new well, and will provide safe drinking water to hundreds of people for years to come. By providing clean water, you are saving and changing the lives of those most critically in need.
