UNICEF and Les Mills have developed Workout for Water to help make every child´s right to clean, safe and sustainable water a reality. Together we’re reaching out to our global network of Les Mills club partners, passionate instructors, and dedicated exercisers – encouraging everyone to set up fundraising pages and organize Workout for Water events in june until december 2019.
It’s hard to imagine having to walk for hours just to fill up your drink bottle, but that’s the reality for thousands of children in East Africa. Workout for Water funds raised in 2019 will support UNICEF’s work to complete the Lega and Yelam Gej multi-village solar-powered water systems in the Amhara Region of Ethiopia.
By giving children access to clean, safe and sustainable water we can help them to grow up healthy and strong, safe from water-borne diseases. They will also have more time to spend on study and playtime when they don't need to walk for hours every day to source water.
Here are some of the clubs who have done events to contribute to the Workout for Water project: Nordic Wellness Arena(swe), Xplore Fitness(cz), From Factory(pl), Fresh Fitness St. Hanshaugen(no), FORM Gotland (swe) and Lokomotion Karlskrona (swe).
As a result of all the events is the total number of donations at the moment: 5 581 $ / 56 845 SEK/ 4 990 € (for the nordic region). The total amount for donations globally are: 84038 $ /855 968 SEK / 75 153 €
More events will follow during the rest of the year.
