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—to generate awareness of the global water crisis and support for the 2,200,000,000 people around the world who do not have access to safe water. We encourage you to walk a 3-mile route in your neighborhood or local park as you consider those who make the walk daily to retrieve water for their family.
We have resources to help make your virtual walk engaging and fun! Our virtual walk instructions includes things like a music playlist, ideas for children's activities, and fun and interesting ways to share about your engagement with your friends and family.
When is the virtual Walk?
The virtual 2020 Twin Cities Walk for Water will take place on Saturday, September 26th. 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.
