Today (March 22) is World Water Day, a United Nations “holiday” that marks an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference.
It’s a big deal in my world. If you know me or follow me, you probably understand this.
I geek out on global development and am particularly passionate about the cause of clean water access and sanitation. I’m also a huge fan and supporter of WaterAid America.
I started planning my World Water Day celebration weeks ago by contacting WaterAid America and talking to my trainer, Luke Robinson, at WolfPack Fitness. A second annual World Water Day Primal Fitness was in order.
I am happy to report that we held our World Water Day event in Auburn, Maine on Sunday and raised $250 for WaterAid America. We wore #blue4water and even turned our gym equipment – cinderblocks, tires, sledgehammers and buckets – blue for the occasion. It was a soul-shining moment for me because I could share my passion for a global cause and organization with people I truly love.
Today, I share with you two articles I wrote after Sunday’s amazing event.
