Good Hope Wells
Our program's mission is to provide clean and drinkable water to as many communities as we can in East, West and North Africa.
Founded in May 2013, we have funded the digging of five wells in Africa which provide clean water for many villages, crops and livestock. The average cost of a well can exceed $25,000 but one well can save hundreds of lives and change the lives of thousands of people.
Good Hope Wells Projects
Our major way we raise funds is our Annual Running and Walking Well 5K which has taken place for the last four years every Spring on the North Shore of Boston. In the future we hope to apply for grants so additional wells can be funded. Our next event will be in Kenya Africa May 2023.

This is why we run
That is is why we run.... we run to benefit those less fortunate to have clean and drinkable water. Safe water is scarce. Every day in rural communities in Africa, statistics show that about 24% of the 1.37 billion people in Africa suffer with inaccessible clean and safe water for drinking, household use, and agriculture. And this has resulted in countless deaths and diseases, especially in children.
You can make a difference by signing up to run or walk, sponsoring others to run or walk, being a sponsor of the race, volunteering, or spreading the word to individuals, groups, or organizations who may be interested in participating in one way or the other.
