Run for Water Challenge

Winnovators 2019

1000km Run for Water Challenge

Over the course of 6 weeks, we (Samantha Harris, Samaneh Ghaffari, Mikaela Green & Jessica-Sai Penwarn) will run 1km for every $1 donated. We are aiming to run a combined 1000km for WaterAid, who bring clean water and decent toilets to developing countries. 1 in 10 don’t have clean water close to home, while 1 in 4 people on the planet don’t have a decent toilet of their own.

The Challenge:

We will be running at every opportunity, replacing our commute to and from work, park runs and half marathons, whilst fulfilling our full time careers, to feel a very small percentage of pain that people go through.

Buy a kilometre or two by hitting Donate. Please give generously, WaterAid make a significant impact through delivering the essentials of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. Every $1 invested in water and toilets returns an average of $4 in increased productivity. As a result, lives are reborn again, women and girls regain their dignity where they are able to wash their kids and themselves, education improves and women and men have a chance to earn a living.

Our Story:

Us? Well we don’t know what it’s like to be thirsty. We are 3 women blessed to be born into a place where an abundance of water is available to us at every angle. If we can contribute 1% towards change, then our job is done.

Inspired?

Looking for a challenge? Interested in joining us? We are looking for another few people to join us on our journey for change.
