Pump Aid are appealing for 14,000 charitable soles to don their running apparel and take part in this years 6km race, The Dow Live Earth Run for Water.
The charity run, which takes place on April 18, aims to raise money to help the 1 billion people across the world that don’t have access to clean water.
So why is the run 6km? Well, 6km is the average distance that women and children have to walk every single day just to receive clean water, a trip that many of us are fortunate to have never experienced ourselves.
The goal of Pump Aid is simple, if 14,000 people take part and raise £500 each, the charity will have enough money to give over 3.5 million people clean water.
Speaking about the run singer and Pump Aid ambassador Corrine Bailey Rae said:
“As goodwill ambassador for the charity Pump Aid I’ve seen at firsthand how a relatively small amount of money can transform the lives of rural communities in Africa. That’s why I support Live Earth and its 2010 Run for Water. I hope people will be inspired to support Live Earth and Pump Aid on 18 April.”
