*Edit: Because of COVID restrictions, we could not do the walk-a-thon on June 12. New date TBD soon.*
Did you know that today over 300 million people in Africa don’t have access to clean water? In school we read a book called “A Long Walk to Water” by Linda Sue Park, which takes place in Sudan and is about two kids whose lives are dramatically affected by a lack of water. They are forced to find water to drink and to care for their crops and animals by walking over 8 km twice a day. This book inspired the idea of a walkathon to raise money for clean, safe water in Africa - a long walk FOR water. On June 12, we will we will be doing our long walk out at Birds Hill Park. Lack of access to water is a huge problem for many people, so please join us in being part of the solution by sponsoring our walkathon.

How this works

Dirty water impacts health, education, women, and income. Providing a reliable and safe water source allows communities to thrive.

The Water Project provides access to safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. Together, our support can end the water crisis and restore hope, one community at a time.

The coolest part? We'll all get to see our impact! Every gift is directly linked to a specific water project and community. We'll receive updates including photos and stories, maps and more!

Lives change when communities gain access to clean water. Let's experience it together. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
