Understanding the Situation

Living Life Without Clean Water

“We knew that we had to do this project after the pandemic. When we sent materials on how to stay as safe as possible, our scholars replied, ‘The water makes us sick. How are we supposed to stay healthy if we can’t safely wash our hands?'”


Mike Tenbusch, IntSam President & CEO

“Mary’s family uses rainwater to drink, cook, and bathe, as well as wash clothes, utensils and everything else. Mary’s family was embarrassed to tell us that they also drink this water. I am so very happy to start this water project which is going to change the life of Mary and so many others.”


Ronia Ramirez, Director of IntSam Tegucigalpa

The Water Bottle Relay

A New Way to Race

Just like the normal 5K, you can do your relay from anywhere in the world. Grab two to five people to relay with and sign up your relay team!
