2020 Great Rivers Virtual Walk or Run for Water
November 6th-8th, 2020
From wherever you are!
We look forward to Walk or Run for Water with you on
November 6th, 7th or 8th!
This year, you can take part by walking wherever and whenever you would like. Grab a water-carrying container, plan a 3.5 mile route in a location where you feel most comfortable and walk or run in solidarity with those who must walk for water everyday. Join us to bring life-saving water to thousands of people!
This is more than a Walk. Together, we change lives.
Why do we walk?
Everyday, millions of women and children in developing countries walk an average of 3.5 miles (5.6 km) to retrieve water for their family's daily needs. In most cases, even after walking for miles and miles, the water they have to drink is contaminated.
We walk to simulate the trek and stand in solidarity with those who must take it. We walk to bring awareness of the situation. As a result, more people will understand the challenges they face.
