On Monday, June 18, 2012, a Czech runner, David Chrištof, started his 1,200 kilometre/750 mile journey from Prague to London. The goal of this charitable Prague to London RUN FOR SAFE DRINKING WATER is to raise awareness about the safe drinking water crisis. The event is organized by the German School in Prague where David Chrištof teaches English.
Chrištof will be running for approximately five weeks across the Czech Republic, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, and the U.K. He will reach the British capital before the beginning of the Olympic Games.
“I want to raise enough money to provide safe drinking water for 333 people,” says the 33-year old English teacher who has already run 21 marathons and 13 ultra-marathons. He will collect donations through a secure donation account. All donations go directly to Blue Planet Network, a non-profit foundation that funds safe drinking water projects around the world. Over one billion people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water.
