New Delhi: Australian water advocate Mina Guli, the CEO of water conservation charity Thirst, plans to complete 100 marathons in 100 days to call attention towards the global water crisis.
On Saturday, Guli, ran at India Gate as part of 100 marathons as part of taking initiative to different countries.
#RunningDry was launched at the New York City Marathon on November 4. Over the course of the expedition, Mina will run in England, France, Italy, Uzbekistan and the Aral Sea, India, Hong Kong, China, Dubai, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, Australia, Chile, Bolivia, Peru and Mexico, before she completes the expedition by running across the United States to finish her 100th marathon in New York City on February 11, 2019.
Speaking to Ten News , Mina Guli said,
“#RunningDry is a call to each of us to save water and to join together to change the way that we all use, consume and think about water. While this journey is not easy, knowing I have a network of support around the world motivates me everyday. I couldn’t do this without the support.”
She further added, “The water we need to live, to survive, is running out. We’re calling this #RunningDry because we need to bring home the severity of the crisis we are facing. It is for this reason that I have chosen to do the unthinkable: running 100 marathons in 100 days around the world to show what a 100% commitment to water looks like. We can all help solve the world’s water crisis. Each one of us is able to make a difference.”
