Air pollution is the world’s largest environmental health threat. Poorer people and those from some racial and ethnic groups are disproportionally harmed by this invisible killer. Children who live near roads with heavy duty vehicle traffic face twice the risk of respiratory problems as those living near less congested streets.
But it doesn’t need to be this way. If we cut air pollution we could prevent 50,000 deaths in Europe, every year. Breathing clean air should be a basic human right.
That is why we are connecting runners across Europe to take part in this endurance challenge and raise awareness of this issue.
Support the groups fighting for clean air
By taking part, you’ll be raising vital funds for 18 environmental groups who are campaigning for better air quality across Europe.
Running up and downhill for 3, 6, 12 or 24 hours is a big challenge. So why not ask people to sponsor you and help raise even more money for clean air action.
It’s simple. When you register, you’ll get our own fundraising page. Just add photos, write your story and share the page with your trail running community and friends.
Patagonia Action Works
For almost 40 years, Patagonia has supported grassroots activists working to find solutions to the environmental crisis. But in this time of unprecedented threats, it’s often hard to know the best way to get involved. That’s why we built Patagonia action works to connect committed individuals with grassroots environmental groups, to take action on the most pressing issues facing the world today.
