A long run

THESE guys are running across the african continent to raise money and awareness of the lack of clean water available in many african countries. Some might say "why don't they just move?" Easy to say from a first world perspective where most people have access to cars or public transportation, running water, indoor toilets, electricity, etc. Try moving 50-500 miles to the closest reliable water source under your own locomotive power carrying all your stuff and your family on your back... and it gets a little harder. Remember that word EMPATHY?

The feat of endurance these guys are doing is nothing short of amazing.

BTW, if it means anything to you, Matt Damon has signed on to lend his name to the cause ( I'm always leery of celebrity pet causes, but I think this is a good one. I am a member of as well, and hell, I'm no celebrity.
