2019 St. Mary's Canal Walk for Water
June 8th | 10:30 AM
St. Mary's, OH
Last year, we united to raise awareness of the global water crisis and sent safe water to men, women and children around the world. This year, we will go even farther to reach people in need! Register today.
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.
Location: St. Mary's, OH. The Walk will be 2 miles along the Miami/Erie Canal starting at Shelter House just north of High St.
