Workout for Water - UNICEF

My Activity Tracking


My target 42kms

I'm taking part in Workout for Water...

The challenge for UNICEF staff is to walk a marathon in a week, about the average distance a child walks to collect water in parts of Ethiopia. 

I'll be pushing around the streets here, challenging myself to clock up more than 40kms - from Saturday 24th - Friday 30th August.  If you've been to Wellington in the depths of winter (actually, if you've been here at any time) you'll know this ain't going to be a walk in the park ...

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.  It will mean children won't have to walk for hours every day to collect water; leaving time for more important things like playing or going to school.

You can join me in fundraising or help me to reach my goal by donating to my page.

Thank you to my Sponsors
