We want to change the world and end the problems of clean water, taking this resource to those who most need it. You interested? It's an initiative which will last for one year with the main goal of running 1000km during this period, in order to raise awareness for the shortage of clean water in the world and raise funds, in partnership with GAIN, for water wells in Africa.

WHY RUNNING FOR WATER?
When we want a drink of water, we grab a glass and turn on the tap. We barely give it a second thought. This is not the case for millions of women and children in rural Africa. They walk an hour or two, carry a heavy container of water back home and hope they have enough for their family. Not only is the water difficult to obtain, but it also often carries disease. A deep-capped well that delivers clean water saves lives, improves health and transforms an entire community.
We are seeking for people who are willing to support this cause sponsoring the kilometers that will be run. 1km = 1euro.
This way, we aim to reach the total equivalent to the 1000Km distance, donating the complete value for the project Water for Life Initiative.
This initiative is part of an international wide campaign conducted by Global Aid Network (GAiN) titled "Water for Life Initiative" aimed at digging wells in countries with severe limitations regarding safe water.
GAiN’s "Water for Life Initiative" has already provided 829 water wells, giving 829,000 villagers disease-free water.
GAiN is part of a diverse, global network with offices in Canada, United States, Germany, Australia, Austria, South Korea, Holland and Spain. With distribution networks established throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas, their compassionate reach is truly global in scale.
