What is this event like?
After opening ceremonies, every participant will take a bucket (provided at the event) and begin to walk a three mile route. Half way through the route, walkers fill their bucket with dirty water and carry it back to the park where they will run it through a water filtration system. The Walk is symbolic of the walk that women and children make every single day to collect unsafe water. There will also be a variety of family-friendly activities both before and after the Walk.
