The Walk has been rescheduled! See updates below. Registrations and donations are still being accepted.
This is elev8's Walk for Water in support of Water Mission.
Walking is more fun with friends...
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 of 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 a better understanding of the challenges people around the world face daily in search of something that we often take for granted – water.
Date: October 29
Location: Wompatuck State Park 204 Union St. Hingham, MA 02043
We will kick off the event with folks grabbing a bite after church, then check in/registration, pre-walk warm up, Walk for Water, music, contests and prizes, wrap up/tear down. For additional questions contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
