Join Manal Rostom in City2Surf and run for Clean Water

Every day, women and girls spend 200 million hours walking to collect water for their families. Access to clean water is a fundamental human right. Yet, for millions globally, this right remains unfulfilled. Lack of clean water results in health issues, lack of education and limits economic opportunities. By joining the City2Surf Run, you will help us fund sustainable water projects, directly impacting lives, improving health, and fostering hope in disadvantaged communities.

Who is Manal Rostom?

Manal Rostom, the first Egyptian woman to conquer Everest, is on a new mission. Through her journey down under she has partnered with Penny Appeal Australia & Crescent Wealth to rally climbers and runners to join her in addressing the global water crisis, demonstrating once again that the power to make change lies within us all.

Manal will be taking part in the City2Surf Fun Run to demonstrate the struggle women go through daily to fetch water and fundraise to provide this basic human right for millions. Manal will also be conquering Mount Kosciuszko alongside prominent hikers in the community. This is part of her new record to be the First Egyptian woman to conquer the 7 Major Summits in every Continent!

Together, we can end the water crisis affecting millions!
