Background

TogoRun is grounded in a common goal and belief in the power of commitment to improve the world by advancing health and well-being. We believe that the world moves in powerful ways when like-minded people share a common purpose. In keeping with our values, TogoRun has committed to donating $200,000 worth of public relations services to Pure Earth over two years. Pure Earth is an international non-profit dedicated to solving pollution problems in low- and middle-income countries, where human health is at risk. Pure Earth's mission is closely aligned with the values of TogoRun, which are focused on driving change that improves health, environment and quality of life.

Since the organization was founded in 1999, Pure Earth has completed 110 remediation projects, cleaning up toxic sites and work practices in 27 countries, with multiple clean-ups currently in progress. These clean-up projects have improved the health of 4.2 million people, including more than 800,000 children who are most at risk from the threat of toxic pollution.
