Water is an essential element at any mass participation event and a basic human necessity. With this in mind, MPW will donate a portion of delegate sales this year to help villagers in rural Cambodia gain access to clean, disease-free water through our charity partner B1G1.
The provision of clean and hygienic water will help prevent water-borne illnesses and will allow the villagers to go to work or school without having to worry about provisions for medical treatments for common issues such as diarrhoea. Each registration provides a water filter for a household, giving the gift of safe drinking water, ongoing health, and financial security.
