Did you know that today is UN World Water Day ? Declared in 1993, March 22 has become a day for the UN and it's member nations to implement actions that promote the responsible management and use of as well as access to the world's water resources.
Until this year, I didn't know about World Water Day but because of my involvement with the Run for Water Ultra Marathon it is something that hits close to home. A simple search on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and you'll see that #WorldWaterDay is trending today and I'm hoping that that will help raise awareness for the work that the Run for Water Society is doing.
I've been working on a little video since I committed to the ultra marathon and I thought that in honor of today being World Water Day, today would be a good day to finally post it. I hope you will take a few moments to watch...
I don't think many of us could really imagine what our lives would be like without access to safe, clean water. Let's hope that through the work of Run for Water and other amazing organizations like it around the world, children in villages like Koshale, Ethiopia will no longer have to live wondering what it would be like to actually have it.
I am extremely grateful for the support and donations of so many already. If you or someone you know would like to donate, please follow or direct them to the link below
