Workout for Water - UNICEF

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.

My Updates

Day 3

3 days in and I still haven't worked out how to complete the activity tracker. But I think I have completed 11km so far. Only 31km to go ...

Unimaginable to be surrounded by so much water here in Geneva doing these walks/runs and to think that children in Ethiopia are having to do this every week, carrying huge loads of potentially unsafe water. 

Thank you to my Sponsors



I would have donated without anybody running a marathon for it ! Anyway, you are wonderful people and thank you for doing this job .

Seems like the very best way to do a marathon! And if it makes a little difference to the world, all the better.
