Gold Medalist Swimmer Ryan Lochte Campaigns for Water Issues

, , , ,


U.S. gold medalists Ryan Lochte and Conor Dwyer have gone from swimming pool water to campaigning for water rights with the launch of the latest Water For People PSA. The two Olympians have joined Water For People’s $2 million challenge, Time Well Spent, raising money for women in the developing world.

In the minute and a half PSA, the two Olympians list everything they can get done in four hours — the amount of time millions of women and girls around the world spend collecting water. In comparison, the two Olympians won their gold medals in less than a couple of minutes.

The time these women spend getting water could be spent studying in school or working to earn an income.
