*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.
