This year, San Diego will unite to bring safe water to hundreds of men, women and children across the world. Together, we will reach people in need! Register today.
Registration and t-shirt pick-up will begin at 7:30 am on the beach near Belmont Park (in front of the lifeguard tower). Walk will begin promptly at 8am. Participants will fill their buckets in the Pacific Ocean and walk to Crystal Pier and back for a total of 3.5 miles. We will be off the beach by 11am.
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.
