About The Walk

Why Walk? 

Every day, millions of women and children in developing countries walk nearly four miles to retrieve water for their family's daily needs. In most cases, after walking for miles and miles, the water they have to drink is contaminated. 

Our Walk will simulate this trek to raise awareness of the global water crisis here in our community. Each participant will start the Walk with an empty bucket. About half-way through, they will fill that bucket with water and complete the remainder of the course. We hope that all participants end the Walk with a better understanding of the challenges people around the world face daily in search of something we often take for granted- water. 

Last year, the Twin Cities Walk for Water raised $150,000. Funds from the 2018 walk were put to use to help with sustainable, safe water projects in the Dodoma region of Tanzania. 

Everyone is invited to join us as we Walk for Water. This year, we hope you'll join us as we come together again to take a step forward in fighting the global water crisis.
