2021 Walk for Water-West Virginia
October 23, 2021 • Nutter Fort, WV
Join us in Clarksburg City Park!
2.2 billion people around the world lack access to safe water. That's one-third of the world's population.
Every day, millions of women and children in developing countries walk an average of 3 miles to retrieve water for their family's daily needs. In most cases, even after walking for miles and miles with heavy buckets of water, 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.
Walk for Water-West Virginia is an opportunity to help raise money to build water purification systems for communities around the world, as well as to share the Christian message of hope and salvation. All proceeds go to the Water Mission, a Christian engineering non-profit based in Charleston, SC.
Water is the world's most basic resource. It has the power to give life—and take it. But there is hope. We believe that we can end the global water crisis in our lifetime. With the help of supporters and partners Water Mission has served more than 5,000,000 people in 56 countries with lasting safe water solutions.
