Join us to raise funds for clean water in Guatemala
Run For H2O Vancouver is a community run for all ages to raise funds for sustainable clean water projects in developing countries. The 8th annual fundraiser held in Vancouver, B.C. supports villages in Guatemala. In 2019, the event featured almost 800 participants and 3,000 generous donations, with over 230,000 raised!
The Run For H2O is organized by HOPE International Development Agency with the help of dedicated volunteers. 100% of funds raised will help to provide clean water for life, by enabling communities in Guatemala to build sustainable water systems.

The annual Run For H2O is more than just an initiative to bridge community, friends, and families. It is more than just an opportunity for runners and kids to conquer a 10km, 5km, 1km, or 50m race. It is more than a chance for volunteers to serve enthusiastically in a wide range of roles, or for sponsors and donors to give generously through goods, services, or financial support.
The Run For H2O is all of these things, but even more, it brings all of us together to give the gift of clean water.
At the heart of Run for H2O is a passion and calling to help those in need — and for the past 8 years, the Run continues to focus on bringing clean water to Guatemala, first and foremost.
All processing fees and event costs are covered by our sponsors and registrations fees.
