My Activity Tracking
My target 42 kms
I'm taking part in Workout for Water...
... to help change the world for thousands of children. The funds we raise will help UNICEF to complete the Lega and Yelam Gej multi-village solar-powered water systems in the Amhara Region of Ethiopia.
The challenge for UNICEF staff is to walk a marathon in the week between Saturday 24th - Friday 30th August. 42 kilometres (26 miles) is about the average distance a child walks every week to collect water in parts of Ethiopia.
By supporting me in this challenge, you'll be helping children to have a better future. They won't have to walk for hours every day to collect water; leaving time for more important things like playing with friends or going to school.
You can join me in fundraising or help me to reach my goal by donating to my page here.
All donations are in USD.
Day 7 / 30 August - 10km!
I reached the end of the walk / week - and I'm feeling on top of the world...
Day 1 / 24 August - 8 km!
Training has started in earnest...
Equipment purchased and first steps taken...
Thank you to my Sponsors
Goal reached... and passed
Hi Clair, Thanks for letting me to be part of it. I have first hand experience of walking half an hour to the water source to get clean drinking water. Things back home have changed now, but I can still feel the pain of having to carry water on my back.
Thanks for sharing, Clair. Great cause.
Dear Clair, I am very excited to join the activity, as I know how kids are suffering in some countries to get water. As a Yemeni citizen, I lived the experience with my relatives, who are still suffering to get water from far places through the mountains.
