On Sunday, May 14, I started off in front of Santa Monica Pier in Los Angles. I have now been running for over a month and on Wednesday, June 14, exactly a month after I started my run, I arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. So far I have run 1,484 km. I have run through California and Arizona, and I am about a third through New Mexico.

Blisters continue to be a problem, but this is to be expected given I need to average 50 km per day. So far I am managing to maintain this figure. My body is tired, and I am taking each day as it comes. The run is not about the 5,400 km distance. It is about 108 runs of 50 km each.

A Sustainable Graduation at the AUS Day Care Center

By Sustainability Division in collaboration with Day Care Center

Understanding the importance of building a strong value-based education from a young age, the AUS Day Care Center (DCC) has integrated the theme of recycling in their KG2 program. Children enrolled in KG2 are taught to incorporate the 3 Rs– reduce, reuse and recycle – in their daily life. In order to instill sustainable behavior amongst the students, the importance of preserving our planet and reducing wastage of daily materials such as paper are highlighted at the DCC. Students are also educated to reuse food by using the waste as compost or as food for animals and birds.
