Access Partner The Last Well Raises $4,800 For Liberian Water Projects Through First Baptist Dallas Easter Run

BEBEBBEWe’re grateful to the team at First Baptist Dallas and everyone who competed in the Easter Run for raising $4,800 to bring clean water to Liberia. With fundraising efforts like these, we’re confident that we’ll meet our goal.

Access today announced that its partner The Last Well (TLW), a Dallas-based non-profit, has raised $4,800 through an Easter Run organized by First Dallas Baptist and held on March 26. This year was the third year that the race course wound its way through downtown Dallas, and attracted a record number of runners of all ages and abilities.

The new funds will be put toward new water projects in the impoverished West Africa nation of Liberia. As it costs just $3,000 to provide an entire village with clean, disease-free water, the Easter Run’s support will enable TLW to a whole community and will contribute to a second well. To date, TLW has reached more than 1,000,000 Liberians with over 1,500 water projects.

“We’re grateful to the team at First Baptist Dallas and everyone who competed in the Easter Run for raising $4,800 to bring clean water to Liberia,” said Dr. Todd Phillips, founder and director of TLW. “With fundraising efforts like these, we’re confident that we’ll meet our goal of reaching the entire nation by 2020.”

To hit this target, TLW still needs the funds to reach 900,000 more Liberians with 2,500 additional water projects. Anyone wishing to support this cause can visit TLW’s website to start a fundraiser or make a recurring or one-off donation. Those wishing to send a check can do so to:
