What follows is a transcription of a recent PSA recorded to raise awareness for an upcoming benefit, hosted by local non-profit organization Unite to Light.
Nonprofit, Unite to Light, presents a worldwide event: You Light The Night 5k.
Run, walk, ride, swim or roll 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) between September 18-28, 2020 to help bring light to people living without electricity.
This global event is intended to bring awareness to the 1 billion people living in darkness every day. When the sun goes down, they rely on candles, kerosene and wood to light their homes; or oftentimes they have nothing. This lack of electricity solidifies poverty, leads to poor health and contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions.
By joining Unite to Light for our You Light the Night 5k, you can help bring light to the world. You can participate no matter where you are in the world. Visit their site to find out how you can participate here.
