I’m Running Up For Air to raise money for groups across Europe who are campaigning for clean air action.

On 31 July, trail runners across Europe will be running for 3, 6, 12, or 24 hours and aiming for a maximum vertical gain. Air pollution is the world’s largest environmental health threat. Poorer areas and those that house some racial and ethnic groups face higher levels of traffic density and are disproportionally harmed by this invisible killer. Children who live or go to school 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 I am taking part in this endurance challenge. Please help me to raise funds for 18 environmental groups fighting for clean air.

Running Up For Air

Saturday 31st Jul
I had to do the run a bit early due to last minute travel changes. But that meant the dogs came with me and had a great down out supporting RUFA.

Excellent concept.

Thank you to my Sponsors
