Introducing 100 Water Heroes

Hi, I’m Mina Guli. I’m running 100 marathons in 100 days to show that we can all do extraordinary things when we are inspired by a bigger purpose. For me, that purpose is Water. The world is in a water crisis, and more people need to know about it so we can change our ways.

When I was in my early 20’s I had an accident and doctors told me I’d never run again. But last year, I ran 40 marathons along 6 major rivers around the world.  I saw for myself the devastation of industrial water use, pollution, poor water management, and climate change. I also saw how good policy and public action could restore a once-dead river, like the Thames. With determination we can improve our lives and the world.

I want to use my runs this year to highlight people who are committed to saving water and ending the water crisis. That’s why I’m going to be highlighting a water hero every day for the coming 100 days.

Please follow my journey @minaguli #runningdry, and nominate and celebrate a water hero you know using the #100waterheroes hashtag.
