FAQs

What is the Walk for Water?

Every day, millions of women and children in developing countries walk nearly 4 miles to retrieve water to their family's daily needs. In most cases, even after walking for miles and miles, the water they have to drink is contaminated. Our Walk will simulate this trek to raise awareness for the global water crisis here in our community. Each participant will start the Walk with an empty bucket. About half way through they will fill that bucket with Water and complete the remainder of the course. We hope that all participants end the Walk with an understanding of what people go through around the world to get something that we take for granted – water.

 

What can I expect?

Walkers will receive a shirt with their registration. Snacks and entertainment will be provided on the day of the event. Expect a family-friendly atmosphere and lots of fun!
