Australian Environmentalist to Run Along Egypt's Nile to Demand Clean Water for All

Mina Guli arrived to her run's fifth station around the world, which is Egypt, two days ago after completing runs along the Colorado, Amazon, Murray Darling and Yangtze rivers.

In an exceptional initiative to bring the world's attention to the issues of water scarcity and providing clean water for all, Australian environmentalist and business woman Mina Guli embarked on a one-of-a-kind run along the banks of the world's greatest rivers in six different continents to support the United Nation's Global Goal: Clean Water for All. The unique run began on World Water Day on the 22nd of March along the Colorado river in North America and has since passed by Brazil's Amazon river, Australia's Murray Darling river and China's Yangtze river before taking off to the world's longest river, the Nile in Egypt.

Guli arrived to Egypt two days ago to begin her one week run along the Nile in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. She'll be carrying a large flag during her run to encourage people to sign it in order to unify the voice of the people in demanding the achievement of UN's Global Goal 6 by 2030. The flag, in addition to an online petition, will be delivered to the UN's headquarters in New York City after the entire run is completed. Guli will be taking off to run along the Thames River in England after her run in Egypt ends.

What's even more interesting about Guli's athletic and environmental journey is that it began after the doctors told her she won't ever be able to run again at the age of 22. Since then, she had challenged the diagnosis, and herself, by embarking on the Seven Desserts Run in 2016 which brought international attention to the issue of water scarcity.
