DENVER, Colo. — Nonprofit organization Water For People, which works to create reliable, safe drinking water resources, improve sanitation facilities and provide hygiene education, has formed a fundraising team for the ING New York City Marathon on November 3, according to a press release.

The marathon takes runners through all of New York City’s five boroughs, mirroring the long distances millions of people walk every day to collect clean water for their families, noted the release.
