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.
Another stunning walk
Really can't complain about the scenery and glorious weather. No hardship having to walk here. I walked nearly 5 km today in hot conditions and didn't take water with me on purpose to see how it feels - I was parched!! Glad to get home for a long cold drink. On my walk, I thought a lot about those children trekking miles each day to fetch water and returning with a heavy load on their back.
First day - and it was a hot one
Started my walk in a hot 30C - imagining what it is like for children to fetch their water in that kind of heat every day.
