Woman Runs Equivalent of 40 Marathons Across 6 Continents to Raise Awareness about Global Water Crisis.
She plans to traverse the globe, running the equivalent of 40 marathons in 40 days to draw attention to the global water crisis.
6 Rivers, 6 Continents, 6 Goals to End Water Scarcity Guli’s journey, which is sponsored by Tibet Water, LieStraw, Nike, and 5100, is sure to make an impact.
Most of the water humans use comes from rivers.
Guli hopes to draw attention to ‘Goal 6’ of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which focuses on improving access to clean water.
Specifically, Guli hopes her 6 River Run will raise awareness for, and help achieve, ‘Goal 6′ of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
“The global water crisis is pervasive and demands our immediate attention,” said Guli, who also serves as a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader.
In some areas, there may be a lot of water, but it isn’t safe to drink.
To help solve the global water crisis, Guli said we also need to be more aware of how and where we use our water.
This means that remembering to turn off the faucet and taking shorter showers might not be enough to tackle the global water crisis.
