Run for Water, Live Earth Event
by Dana Mathews
The NCR Chapter's Emerging Green Builders will be handing out water at one of the stops on the 6 km Run for Water event on April 18.
The Live Earth "Run for Water" race will consist of a series of 6 km run/walks (the average distance that many women and children walk each day to secure water) taking place over the course of 24 hours in countries around the world. The event also features concerts and water education activities aimed at igniting a tipping point to help solve the water crisis. Each EGB volunteer receives a free USGBC-EGB t-shirt and the opportunity to get involved with the Live Earth "Run for Water" to increase awareness of the global water crisis.
