Photos from the Run for Water Announcement
One in eight people don't have access to safe, clean drinking water. In fact, 5,000 children die each day due to inadequate access to clean water. Pete Wentz, a new dad himself, won't stand for it.
Wentz stood up to the water crisis alongside Jessica Biel, Angelique Kidjo, Alexandra Cousteau, and others in announcing the largest worldwide water initiative on record to combat the global water crisis.
"The Dow Live Earth Run for Water will bring people together around the world, raising awareness about the sources and consequences of the water crisis, locally and globally," said Alexandra Cousteau, global water advocate and founder of Blue Legacy International. "It captures perfectly the interconnectedness of life on our water planet and drives home the message that the water crisis is a global issue that isn’t going to be fixed by scientists or policymakers alone. It's up to each of us."
