This is the 2017 Great Rivers 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.
T-shirts will be pre-ordered September 16th, and will be $10 each.
