Workout for Water - UNICEF

My Activity Tracking


My target 42 kms

Zena the poodle and I are 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 and help us get off  The couch and into the wild outdoors.

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. I am guessing Zena will walk about double what I do, so 42 kilometers for me and 84 for her.

By supporting us  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 us in fundraising or help me to reach my goal by donating to my page here.


All donations are in USD.
