Hugh Jackman backs Les Mills and UNICEF Workout for Water event

Hugh Jackman backs Les Mills and UNICEF Workout for Water event
October 17, 2017

Hollywood star Hugh Jackman has declared his support for a worldwide ‘Workout for Water’ event planned by UNICEF and Les Mills to improve access to safe drinking water.

Speaking in a just released YouTube video, the Australian actor stated "this is our chance to come together and show the world what we can do on behalf of kids.

“Join us by holding a Workout for Water class in your gym – encourage your instructors, members and their friends to participate. The world needs a workout, we all need a workout!”

Together with its 19,000 gym partners and 130,000 instructors, Les Mills will team up with UNICEF to host ‘Move the World - Workout for Water’ on World Children’s Day, 18th November.

The global fitness brand announced the new partnership last month in a bid to raise money to help children and their families access safe water and better healthcare.

Unsafe water can lead to weakness, malnourishment and a susceptibility to water-borne diseases, which are among the leading causes of death in children under five.

Dr Jackie Mills, Creative Director at Les Mills International, added "we are absolutely committed to making a difference to the lives of children around the world and we’re honoured to be an official partner of UNICEF."
