The largest worldwide water initiative on record to help combat the global water crisis, the Dow Live Earth Run for Water is a series of 6km run/walks (the average distance many women and children walk every day to get water), culminating with water education villages and live musical performances.
“I’m looking forward to this event and helping bring attention to the global water crisis,” said Bentley. “The run/walks that are happening on the same day across the world are a great reminder that we are all connected and that we are all responsible for helping each other. I’ve always loved playing in Minneapolis… lots of country music fans there, and I’m excited to be part of this historic event.”
Funds raised from the events will benefit Global Water Challenge, a coalition of non profit organizations working to bring clean, safe drinking water to millions of people worldwide. This includes innovative projects that provide clean drinking water to communities in Haiti, Central America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Southeast Asia.
