It has always been a mission of mine to run across the United States for a greater purpose than myself. I want this run to be a motivational experience for the countless cities and communities that make up our great country. 
R[U]N?. We will do this mission to rebuild a home for a Hurricane Sandy victim. Forgot already? They are in desperate need. Stand by its going to get epic around here... 
When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it.

Never question the power of one! Throughout history it has been the actions of only one person who has inspired the movement of change.

Operation Rebuild

Waves for Water "Operation Rebuild and Restore" is helping in the reconstruction of homes and businesses in NY and NJ coastal communities that sustained severe damage from Hurricane Sandy.

Many of these projects are in support of individuals who have been actively involved in post storm relief in their respective communities, helping others before themselves, having lost everything and not possessing insurance, were denied by FEMA, or are facing the reality that FEMA or insurance reimbursements will not cover the full scope of their damage.

Vetted through our network on the ground including W4W sponsored relief centers, volunteer recommendations and first-hand interaction by founder Jon Rose, Waves for Water's support of partial rebuilds and restorations of homes, businesses or shared spaces is furthering the recovery process where financial hardship is preventing forward progress.


Nike sponsored Ultra-Endurance Athlete Jason Lester is embarking on another Epic mission, a 3,100-mile transcontinental run across America.

He will spread his powerful testimony of inspiration and hope throughout the United States starting 5/5/2013 in San Francisco, CA and ending in New York, NY.

Always driven by his deep purpose to serve, this epic run will be a collaborative service project with Waves For Water.

Waves For Water is an active presence and force for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Initiative, which supports neighborhoods and communities recovering from Hurricane Sandy.

Their work continues to be tireless and significantly meaningful to thousands in these devastated communities.

The goal? To raise $20,000, which will rebuild a home for one family giving them a restorative step forward toward the future. The ultimate goal? To raise as much money as possible to help many families rebuild their homes. All of the funds and proceeds raised during the run will go directly to Waves For Water.
