Global Water Challenge April 18
On April 18th, 2010, the world will come together for the Dow Live Earth Run for Water
, a series of 6 km run/walks (the average distance women and children walk everyday to secure water) in cities around the world. The run/walks will be followed by concerts and water education activities, all aimed at growing the global movement to meet the urgent need for clean water.
With nearly 100 events in 50 countries, the Dow Live Earth Run for Water is the largest-ever initiative to raise awareness and funds for clean drinking water. Global Water Challenge
will receieve and invest all funds raised in the United States.
Currently, dirty water kills more children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Access to clean water and sanitation leads to healthier, longer and more productive lives, and breaks the cycle of poverty. Water and sanitation are not just human rights, they are human necessities. The global water crisis is solvable. The solutions exist and they're inexpensive. But we need support from people like you.
