Onslow veteran, minister to walk, run and bike 50 miles to raise money for clean water in Peru
James Grayson, a USMC veteran and minister, will walk, run and bike a total of 50 miles in a single day to raise support for clean water in remote villages in Peru.
During his "50/50 Clean Water Challenge," every $50 donated provides clean water for a whole family for up to 20 years. Grayson and his wife, Crystal, are the founders of Kingdom Ventures, International, a U.S. nonprofit on a mission to bring hope and clean water to families in Peru who are plagued by waterborne illnesses from drinking water that is untreated and frequently contaminated.
The couple has been providing Sawyer PointOne Bucket filter systems to families in and around Iquitos Peru since 2021. These filters last about 20 years and provide over 100,000 gallons of fresh, clean water, which stops the spread of waterborne diseases.

Insects and arachnids that bite in self-defense instead of to feed -- such as yellow jackets, bees, wasps, hornets, certain ants or spiders -- cannot be repelled with insect repellents.
The number of bug-borne diseases is increasing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And the number of places they're spreading to is also on the rise.
