Why did you convert the Walk for Water to a virtual walk?
The safety of our participants is our top priority. Due to the concerns related to large group gatherings and the COVID-19 virus, the 2020 Walk for Water will now be a virtual walk, giving you the flexibility to walk wherever and whenever you would like.
What is a virtual walk?
A virtual walk is a walk that takes place in multiple locations and participants are united by a common purpose. We encourage you to walk a 3-mile route in your neighborhood, around your office building, or in your local community, as you consider those who make that walk daily to retrieve water for their family. You can help generate awareness for the global water crisis by taking a photo in your walk shirt and posting it on social media. Take a look at our virtual walk resources here.
When is the virtual walk?
The virtual 2020 Walk for Water will take place on Saturday, March 21. We encourage participants to walk on this day in their local community. If this date is not feasible, we welcome participants to walk and raise funds whenever is most convenient.
Where is the virtual walk?
The virtual 2020 Walk for Water can take place in any location. This could be in your local neighborhood, around your office building or in your local community.
I've already registered for the physical walk. Where do my donations go? What about donations others gave on my behalf?
All registration fees and donations given for the physical 2020 Walk for Water and the virtual 2020 Walk for Water go directly to providing access to clean, safe water in communities around the world.
What is your refund policy?
The Walk for Water is not canceled but shifted to a virtual Walk. Your registration fee and donations still go directly to providing access to clean, safe water in communities around the world. As we try to prioritize your health and safety amid the uncertainties of COVID-19, we thank you for your flexibility in this event shift. If you have questions about your registration fee or the donations given to the walk, please Water Mission at 843-769-7395 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
