The Blue Planet Run

Running for a cause: Safe and clean water

The Blue Planet Run will cover 15,200 miles, across 16 countries and 4 continents, 24 hours a day for 95 days to deliver an urgent and important message: We can and must begin to alleviate the catastrophic burden placed on over a billion people who, every day, must drink unsafe local water, or travel long distances on foot to search for safe water for themselves and their families. Water is a basic necessity!!!

The run starts in New York City on June 1, 2007, when a team of 20 ordinary male and female athletes will run around the clock along a route that includes the U.S., Ireland, the U.K., France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Belarus, Russia, Mongolia, China, Japan and Canada. Each runner will sprint 10 miles a day. Batons will be passed at over 1,500 exchange points. The Run will end right where is started, back in New York City, on September 4, 2007.

The event will be completely Earth - and people - friendly, imagine an event that becomes known as "The Race without a Trace." Visit BluePlanetRun.com to find out how you can get involved and to donate money for these efforts (100% of all financial contributions to the Blue Planet Run go directly into funding safe water projects).

My roommate is handling the PR during the travel. She's been on this project since the beginning and I'm so proud of her for all the work she's done. The cause is a really good one. They will be in the States in August starting on the west coast and then moving eastward. Look for them to run through your town!
