Run & Rally for Water: March 22, 2008: World Water Day

Runners, Washington, D.C. locals and people interested in supporting an effort to build the next borehole well in the Azawak Valley - please come out for the Run and Rally for Water on March 22, 2008.

March 22 is recognized by the United Nations as World Water Day. The event will raise awareness about global water shortages and Amman Imman's efforts in Niger.

Runners will run one portion of a marathon - 26.2 miles. The total distance run on March 22 will represent the distance many children in the Azawak must travel to find water for their families. All runners will be wearing blue to signify the clean water our wells will tap into, deep below the surface of the Azawak Valley.

Each participant will set their own fundraising goal. The first runner will take off at 9 a.m. from the corner of Columbia and Connecticut Avenues NW. The last runner will end at that same spot around 3 p.m. A rally will take place in Dupont Circle, following the run at 4 p.m.
