On 9th June 2012, I organised 'THE 8 MILE WATER RUN' at Battersea Park. Following the statistic by the UNESCO, Facts and Figures: Water Supply and Sanitation: 'The average distance that women in Africa and Asia walk to collect water is six kilometres and the weight of water they carry on their heads is about 20kgs'.

In effort to raise awareness of this staggering statistic and to fundraise towards my Raleigh International expedition to India as Project Manager, I ran 6 kilometres (about 4 miles) and then carried 20 kilograms for a further 6 kilometres.
