Keller Williams Realty Rallies for Run for the Water


KW 2014 Run for the Water

Our KW family celebrating a big finish at the 2014 Run for the Water.

Keller Williams Realty International (KWRI) was founded in Austin, based in Austin and committed to Austin. One KWRI tradition is its title sponsorship of the Gazelle Foundation’s Run for the Water, a run supporting the Austin-based foundation that is transforming lives in Burundi by supplying access to clean water. Foundation founder, Gilbert Tuhabonye, is a native Burundian who now calls Austin home. Gilbert’s own triumphant story of fleeing civil war in Burundi captured the hearts of the Keller Williams (KW) associates many years ago and he is basically part of the KW family!

Why Run?

Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world and has little access to natural water sources. Each race registration provides clean water to one Burundian for life. It’s one for one! Join us November 1 for the fun! Register and use KWruns2015 to take advantage of the KW friends and family discount.

Run in Austin

Run for the Water offers a 10 mile, 5K and Kids K. More than 7,000 participants are expected to take part this year. KW’s goal is for 1,000 of these runners to be our friends and family. We are bringing our favorite party, Red Bash, to Run for the Water with tents hosting KW red swag, photo booths from MyEventIsTheBomb, juice from DailyJuice and breakfast tacos provided by Austin Tour Company. For the first time ever, the Gazelle Foundation has created a KW red shirt for our family members who register before October 1.

Go for the Global Run

For the first time, MapMyFitness is offering a global run and training platform. Regardless of where you live, you too can take part in Run for the Water!
