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.
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.
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.
