Blue Planet Run 

1 out of 5 people in our world lack safe, clean, drinking water. 20 runners from the Blue Planet Run Foundation, are currently circling the earth; running over 15,000 miles, to raise awareness and money for safe drinking water projects around the globe. They began in New York City, USA, on June 1, 2007, and will cross USA, Ireland, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Belarus, Russia, Mongolia, China, Japan and Canada. Running in relays, 24 hours a day, they are joined by guest runners along the route and finish back in New York City on September 4, 2007.

Here is a clip of David Christof carrying the baton through his hometown of Prague, Czech Republic as the runners makes their way to Vienna, Austria and on to Krakow and Warsaw, Poland.
