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.
My first personal target is to raise the €1000 for clean air in the future and for our descendants. But my second goal is to run my first 100k. A mindblowing number - for me.
I selected a 20k look around my house with about 1100+ vertical meters - if everything working together I want to do 5 Loops - reminds me on the Barkley Marathon (very inspiring by the way) - and so in the end there should be the number of 100 makable (about 6000+ vertical). For that big adventure I hope I can find some little sponsors to raise the money! Please share my story where ever you can - I will appreciate it!
